Choose your Gift!
Our child welfare system is overburdened and needs the support of the larger community around them - especially during the holiday season when days can feel especially lonely.
One of the ways we do this is through our annual Giving Tree Campaign that purchases gifts for foster/kinship families & social workers.
When we started this, we heard directly from the agencies that their biggest needs were useful gifts to encourage the family as a whole, as well as gift cards that could be used by the parents to buy specific items requested by the children. Gift cards are the most versatile gift and you can get pretty much anything on Amazon.
Social workers have caseloads that are overwhelming, especially right now. The Wawa and Starbucks gift cards will be given to the social workers to show our gratitude for the tiring and often overlooked work they do. We will deliver the gift cards along with thank you cards to be an encouragement that people in their community care about them.
Thank you so much for your generous gift of two gift cards. We are blown away by this blessing. We will be using the Target one for diapers. The Amazon one will be put to good use for shoes, books & other fun stuff. - Foster Parent
Thank you so much for the Starbucks gift!! I truly appreciate your kind words and thoughtfulness behind the work that we do for our families. As always we could not do this work without your consistent help, so thank you for EVERYTHING you contribute to our team. - Case Worker
