WHY START A FOSTER CLOSET?
Ben and Chrissy went to different churches in our area in 2013 to speak about being foster care. The support they received was amazing; Davidson County DSS ended up having a full class this past fall!! We started to think of how we could help these families and the idea came up to start a foster closet. Many kids come into foster care with little or nothing. Most families do not know what age child they will be getting and they do not have the items they need when they get a call for a child. With your help and donations we can freely give needed items to foster families and to the precious children in foster care in their homes.
WHAT KIND OF DONATIONS WILL WE TAKE?
WE ARE CURRENTLY NOT ACCEPTING DONATIONS. We are so thankful to our community, y'all have really blown us away by the giving!! Thank You!!
We will take donations for children 0-18 years old. Examples: clothes, bedding, toys, books, luggage, back packs, diapers, gift cards etc. Basically anything that is new or slightly used. We will not have normal operating hours, please contact us to drop off donations.
WHO WILL WE HELP?
We will only be helping foster families and families who are called for relative placements, who have children placed with them with little or no belongings. We will not be open to the public. DSS or the foster family will contact us to pick up what they need. We are hoping to grow into a resource that DSS and private agencies can regularly use to get needed items for foster families and for the children in care.
