Other Ways to Be Involved
Short on time? Or interested in alternative ways to be involved?
Gift card contributions will go a long way toward making sure our Foster Parents have everything they need for their children. We welcome gift cards to Walgreens, Amazon, Walmart, Target, etc.
Want to get more people involved? Why not start a collection with your colleagues at work, at your church, or with fellow club or group members?
