*Belk Gift Cards
A local children’s shelter is in need of gift cards to Belk so that they can take their teen girls shopping for necessities. This is a great way to help a teenage girl in our foster care community get the items she needs but also be treated to a day of shopping where she feels special and valued. Can you pick up a gift card to help with this project? Email us at email@example.com for information on where to send the gift cards!
A local agency has asked us to collect individually wrapped candy of any kind for them to make Halloween treat bags for the children in their care. This is a simple way you can get involved in showing some love to kids in foster care! Message us on Facebook or email Rachel at firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange pick up.
*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 email@example.com so that we can discuss the possibilities and help get your group connected!
*Used Tablets for DSS
Do you have a tablet of any kind that you no longer use? Recently, we had a generous donor pass on their used Nook for a local DSS office. It will be used for older children and teens who have to wait in the office to watch TV or play games while they wait. DSS was thrilled to have it! We would like to try to provide them with a few more tablets so that workers can check them out as needed for travel, etc. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help!
*Paper Goods & After-school Snacks
A local children’s shelter is always in need of household items like paper towels, paper plates, plastic forks, and sensitive skin bar soap as well as after school snacks to have on hand for the kids (for example, individual bags of chips, apple sauce packets, etc.). We are collecting these at any time for them to help them keep things running smoothly. If you would like to donate individually or arrange a drive for these products, contact us at email@example.com.
