We could buy food, drinks and snacks for the kids who come to the Center. Sometimes children come to us who have not eaten all day and must wait for hours for a foster or relative placement.
We can replace our supply of new clothing, pajamas, toothbrushes, toiletries. Unfortunately, some children are not safe in their own homes, and must go into foster care. These children have no clothing, nightclothes, or anything to call their own as they go to these unfamiliar surroundings. We provide a backpack with a couple changes of clothing, a book, and personal care items to help make the transition a little easier.
Finally- as a non-profit, we are always looking for funding for our operating expenses, which we proudly keep under 12% of our total budget.
