How You Can Help

At FRIENDS’ our motto is, “providing the best of care for children in need” and donations help us to do that. As a non- profit, 501 (C) 3 publicly supported foundation, the donations you give to help our foster children are tax deductible. After donating, you will receive a thank you letter for your tax records. Your donations are used to aid us in providing needed supplies and activities that allow our foster kids the opportunity to just be kids. Below are some examples of what a financial contribution helps us provide.

  • tyClothing of all sizes (including winter coats, jackets, sweaters & pajamas)
  • School supplies
  • Up to date technology such as computers, tablets, phones, and software
  • Special birthday gift for each child’s birthday
  • School activities such field trips, homecoming, and prom
  • School memorabilia such yearbooks, school pictures, and class rings
  • Tickets for weekend activities such as trips to the zoo, museums, movies, and more
  • Tickets for special events such as concerts, circus, fair, and sporting events
  • Summer activities such as camp and day trips
  • Luggage and other necessities for when our kids transition out of our care
