FOSTER CARE – Holiday Giving/Volunteer Opportunities
Are you looking for volunteer or giving opportunities for you and/or your family? Here are a few possibilities:
White Center Foster Parent Support Group, Christmas Party – Saturday, December 8, 4-7pm
At Beverly Park Baptist Church in Burien
Children’s Administration Joyful Toy Giveaways – Wednesday, December 19, noon-3pm
At the Delridge DCYF (Dept of Children, Youth, and Families) office
Care Closet clothing/ Care Boxes/ Toys
Christmas giving is a great opportunity to collect clothing/ supplies for DCYF Care Closets that will serve children coming into care throughout the year. New clothing, duffle bags, toys (no stuffed animals), etc…
Holiday Meal Kits for biological families
Meal kits for bio parents involved with CPS, parents who have their children in trial return home (which means they still have legal custody over them), and relative caregivers who are in need. Packing list available.
Gift cards for experiences while children await placement in the office, and/or for stores where items needed for teens can be purchased (because it’s so hard to stock the Care Closet for all shapes & sizes of teens).
FOSTER CARE BOXES
Do you have supplies for a care box or a completed box to turn in? Though it may be a while until we do another full solicitation, we can consolidate materials and get them to the foster care office.
If you have either, please contact Dee West at (email@example.com) or 206-258-2108.
