Did you know?
Every day in Johnston County, children are placed in foster care or moved to another foster family or local children's home. Also, many foster kids age out of the system without ever being adopted! They all need as much support as we can give them.
For the smaller kids:
Help us provide these kids with essentials like a blanket, hygiene kit, coloring book and crayons, and a small toy. Older children would enjoy a journal and nice pen.
For the aged-out youth:
Help us provide these older kids with essentials like a sheet set, towels and washcloths, a hygiene kit, gift cards to local fast food restaurants, gas cards, quarters for laundromats, and other necessary items.
Include toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, soap, wash cloth, or scrunchie, and deodorant. It would be helpful to pack the items in a toiletry bag.
