About

The New Foster Care needs volunteers to collect items for our foster youth and families s apart of our Placement Blessings Program. Volunteers typically hold collections through their work, school, youth group, or religious group. Volunteers may ask parents, neighbors, family, and friends to donate, but we discourage soliciting strangers door-to-door. Some suggestions are:

Children & Families / Youth / Young Adults
-New baby items (diapers, wipes, clothes, socks, bottles)
-New school supplies (backpacks, pens, pencils, paper, folders, rulers, markers)
-Personal care packages for teens (chapstick, scented lotions, hair care products)
-Arts and craft kits for foster care children (crayons, markers, notepads, construction paper)
-Non-perishable food items for foster homes (pasta, soups, canned goods)
-Hygiene packages for foster youth/young adults (soap, deodorant, hair products, dental care items)
-New clothing for foster youth/ young adults(blankets, seasonal clothing, socks)
-Gently-used winter coats for foster youth/ young adults (in season)

Speciality Items
-Baskets of cleaning supplies (cleaners, sponges, paper towels, detergent)
-"Welcome" baskets for newly-housed foster youth/ young adults
-Gift cards for families (Gas, Aldi, Walmart)
