dazzle

 

This year we are making a difference in the lives of others and bettering our community by giving back to Tallahassee’s more than 300 kids who are currently in foster care. When children enter foster care or are transitioning between homes, they are usually given empty suitcases, when available. The new homes may fill these suitcases and the children may leave with new and loved items. But, that first night is the hardest. The new parents have to rush to prepare the house and buy supplies. Here is how you can help!!!!

How You Can Help!

We are creating “filled” backpacks for children on the first night in their new homes. Below is a list of items that was curated by local foster parents. We would like to have donations (supplies or money) by April 30th. These can be dropped off at our office 1520 Killearn Center Blvd. Suite 100.
