December Donation Drive for “Bags of Hope”

We are currently doing a donation drive throughout the 2016 holiday season. When children come into foster care during this time of year, it is especially hard for them to be away from their homes and transition into a foster family.   When our little girl came to us two days after Christmas, it was nice to receive items to help her transition. The blanket she received nearly four years ago is one of her favorite blankets to this day.

If you feel led to give to this organization, please click on the donate tab.  Email Michele.hofc@gmail.com to make arrangements for collection of your donation.  Here’s what what we’ll take:

– Duffel bags or backpacks
– Blankets (baby up to teen)
– Stuffed toys (gently used okay)
– Crayons
– Coloring books
– Baby rattles
– Small packs of diapers
– Toothbrushes
– Toothpaste
– Deodorant
– Shampoo
– Lotion
– Soap
– Body Wash
– Cash donations (we are not yet a nonprofit, however, so no tax receipt can be given)

Here is a photo of an example of what goes into a “Bag of Hope,” which will help newly-placed foster children feel a sense of comfort and transition a little easier into their new homes with something to call their own.
