Find a Need, South Carolina - ColumbiaMay. 20, 2016

Current Needs for Columbia, SC (May 2016)

*Paper Goods for a Local Children’s Shelter
We are collecting paper plates, paper towels, plastic forks, and sensitive skin bar soap for a local children’s shelter. They are constantly in need of household products and are running specifically low on these particular items. This is a simple way to get involved but will be a huge blessing to the foster care community! Email to arrange pick up or for a shipping address if you wish to donate.

*Teen Journey Bags
We can always use Journey Bags for any age, but several agencies have specifically requested bags filled for teens. If you are interested in packing a bag or two for a teen transitioning into foster care or if your church would like to host a Journey Bag drive, please email Rachel at for more information and a list of suggested items to include.

*Worker Appreciation Teams
We are looking for churches or groups that would be willing to partner with us to do something special on a monthly basis to care for and encourage workers at the agencies we serve. Simple things like baked goods, goody bags, notes of encouragement, or a special breakfast will let workers know that they are remembered and appreciated as they do the important work of caring for children. We serve agencies of different sizes, so even if your group is not big, you can still be involved. If you are interested, please email so that we can discuss the possibilities and help get your group connected!

TFI Advocate: Columbia, SC

Rachel is married to Jonathan and has three daughters through the gift of adoption. She wants to be more like Jesus and to live a life of gratitude for all He is and has done. Until recently, she didn’t have much exposure to or experience with the foster care community; but the more she learned about it, the more she realized that she wanted to be involved with something so near to the heart of Jesus. She is excited about what God is doing and will continue to do in the foster care community in her city and feels honored to get to be a part of it!
