You’re helping to make Christmas dreams come true for children in foster care right here in Kansas City!
From a foster parent- I was a foster mom who was a recipient of the gifts for my (at the time, 3 foster) kids…it helped tremendously because we didn’t plan on accepting a sibling group placement, but we were told if we didn’t, they would all be split up and go to different homes. This was the saddest thing I have ever heard, so of course we accepted all 3. Three kids, who didn’t (literally ) have underwear, socks, shoes, coats…after meeting their immediate basic needs, we could NOT afford Christmas gifts. The donation of gifts allowed our children to remain together, and for the first time in their little lives, have a Christmas. They didn’t know the gifts were donated, and they didn’t care. They were happy to be safe, in a home with their brother and sister, warm, and loved.
