Imagine your first night in foster care. You enter a strange place, a new foster family’s home, with nothing; at most, a garbage bag full of junk. This year Linden Pay It Forward is partnering with Clara’s Hope to collect items for these first night bags.
Last year, Clara’s Hope of Fenton delivered over 300 filled backpacks to local foster care agencies. We have foster children in our Linden schools and community which is why we want to help. All items are to be NEW and unused to make these kiddos know they are thought of, valued, loved and important.·
- Socks in baby, toddler and adult (male sizes) only
- Underwear Toddler 2-5T and adult male sizes only (S-XL)
- Pajamas in all sizes newborn through adult XS-XXL for boys and girls
- Pull ups, larger sizes
We can start collecting NOW with items being dropped off at the collection boxes located in the foyer of Edward Jones in Linden (Broad Street) and Linden Child Development Center (Linden Rd). Place donated items in the bins provided.
If you are in the Argentine area, you can also drop items at my house. Text message for address and location of drop box. (810-399-4842- Denise)
Don’t have time to shop, no worries, Clara’s Hope is accepting Target or Walmart gift cards and have shoppers ready to fill the back packs for these sweet kids.
