The Heart of Foster Care is currently taking donations of new items for our “Bags of Hope” Project.  Bags of Hope are duffel bags or backpacks filled with a blanket, stuffed animal, toothpaste, toothbrush, and other personal items.  When a child enters foster care for the first time, they may come into a home with nothing but the clothes on their back. These Bags of Hope give them a sense of comfort and help ease the transition into their foster home with a little something to call their own.

If you have any questions or are interested in donating, please email Michele at

Some of the items we are taking at this time are:

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

Thank you for your interest in giving.  We appreciate your support!
