Care Packages for Foster Children
Join us on "Make a Difference Day" to create care packages for children entering foster care. Many children come into foster care with little or no personal belongings. We want to alleviate the stress on the child, social worker, and foster parents by providing a care package with toothbrushes and toothpaste, underwear, socks, toys, and other new personal items for the child. At this event, we will be putting together 400 care packages for children entering foster care in 15 Alabama counties. Any new items appropriate for care packages will be accepted before and at the event. The packaging event will be from 9am-11am on Saturday, October 22nd, at the Northstar/Commpak Warehouse, 2406 Frederick Rd.,(Across from Kroger in Tigertown) Opelika, AL 36801.
