in 2019 we collected donations through fundraisers for pieces of luggage and duffel bags to get our kids something besides black trash bags to hold the few things they have when they move to a different placement, have overnight or weekend stay with parents, trips with foster parents or camps.
In 2018 and 2019 we provided Christmas presents and Easter baskets for younger children in foster care. Because of your generous donations, these kids could experience these holidays like every child should be able to.
We have been provided with donations of 30 backpacks for school, sleeping bags and toiletries for camp and other items for our kids. We need more every year! We are also hopeful for different opportunities like field trips to schools, museums and other enriching activities.
Some college camps allow children who have an interest in sports to go on 1 or 2 day camps or seven day overnight camps that teach them necessary skills need to succeed in their respective sport. Coach Chip Kelley taught our youth football drills that will never be forgotten. Costs range between $350 and $700. We would like to be able to send at least 50 kids this year.
