Tis the Season
This year, TCF is proud to support the Foster Closet of Michigan with our annual Angel Tree Drive.
What is the Foster Closet of Michigan?
The Foster Closet of Michigan provides personal items (clothes, undergarments, toys, shoes, baby gear, and furniture) to children placed in the foster care system in the State of Michigan. These items are new and like-new items that have been donated. Children entering care often have no personal items, and in many cases have only the clothes on their backs. The items they provide help to beigin the process of rebuilidng a foster child's self-esteem, and provides them with belongings they can call their own.
Our very own shemarie82 is the coordinator for one of the Foster Closet of Michigan branches, and she's provided me with some information to share in the second post.
You'll probably notice that a lot of the Amazon items are daily essentials. And while I know that pads, tampons, diapers, and soap are not nearly as exciting as shopping for toys and cute baby clothes, if we can stock the Foster Closet with their day-to-day needs, they'll be able to spend more of their valuable time and financial resources meeting the larger unment needs of these families instead of constantly having to go out and buy diapers and shampoo.
As always, help if you are able, but don't feel guilty if it's not in the budget this year. If you sort the list by cost, you will see that we have 2.5 pages of items under $10, and most of them are NOT add-on items. We tried to ensure there were options for every budget.
