Thank you so much for supporting these children as they enter foster care. Your gift will provide some comfort and cheer during this holiday season and we couldn’t do it without you!

Before we get to the list, here are a few requests…

  • Please, no toy guns or weapons
  • Please, no used or handmade items
  • Please, no religious items
  • If you are shopping at Dollar Tree or Five Below or other discount stores, we prefer the coloring books over any other items. We like to leave all other items at the dollar stores for the families to purchase if they are trying to stretch a tight budget.
  • Starred items* are things we need throughout the year
