Foster children are placed in care of the state due to abuse and neglect. These children due to no fault of their own become a part of the court system. Way too often due to no fault of the child they are shifted from foster home to foster home with all their belongings in garbage bags. The message these children and youth often perceive is that they are disposable. You kind donation can sponsor a duffel bag for a child
Notebook paper, pencils, erasers, pens, colored pencils, kids scissors, glue sticks, calculators, markers, highlighters, folders, pencil case, pencil sharpener, crayons, hand sanitizer, etc.
Students in foster care move schools at least once or twice a year, and by the time they age out of the system, over one third will have experienced five or more moves. Children are estimated to lose four to six months of academic progress per move, which puts most foster care children behind their peers. Usually ten hours of tutoring can catch a child back up to their level. You can help sponsor a child ten hours of tutoring for $200.
Activities such as:
