As foster kids age out, they need the same things your child needed or will need to go out on their own. We have a storage area set up they can “shop” in to furnish their first apartment. It’s quite rewarding to watch them pick out the things that turn a cold, empty apartment into their first home. We are always in need of the following items:
Big items: Couches, chairs, small dining room sets, coffee and end tables, lamps, computer desks, dressers, bikes with bike locks, helmets, dishes, pans, mixing bowls, full size sheet sets., towels
Monthly Items: Bus passes, grocery gift cards, basket of non perishable foods
Items we always need: Baskets for cleaning, basket of basic kitchen pantry items, basket of soaps (dish soap, clothes soap, bar soap)
Fun Items: Care packages for finals week, gift cards for Christmas, fast food gift certificates.
