Now through Sunday, Nov. 26
When children and teens are removed from their homes without warning, they often arrive at the foster agency with what little they have in a trash bag. Much of their clothing doesn’t fit or keep them warm enough, especially in the winter. That’s why Creekside and Koinonia Family Services are inviting you to help these kids feel seen and loved this holiday season! Here’s how:
BUY A NEW SMALL DUFFLE BAG AND FILL IT WITH:
1 new winter jacket
1 new package of socks
1 new pair of warm pajamas
for teen boys, sweat suits are recommended
NOTE: PLEASE AVOID SOLID RED OR BLUE
LABEL YOUR BAG BY GENDER AND SIZE
· boy or girl
· kids XS-XL or juniors XS-XL (all sizes needed!)
DROP IT OFF AT CREEKSIDE BY SUNDAY, NOV. 26
Koinonia Family Services, a local foster care and adoption agency, will distribute the bags to kids as they are welcomed through their doors.
