My Foster Kids Foundation Inc. is dedicated to helping foster parents and foster children transition into a traditional family setting. Children are often removed from unstable environments with little notice and with very few belongings. Foster parents are often asked to take in children with little notice and little time to prepare for the child; the child’s age, gender and special needs are factors which effect preparedness on the part of the foster family.
The transition into a foster family can be difficult and many needs are often overlooked as the child’s safety and well-being are the initial priority. Once life starts back up, foster families find themselves struggling to fund the ongoing care and meet those unexpected needs. My Foster Kids Foundation Inc. is dedicated to making the child’s journey into the foster care system as seamless as possible by providing foster family’s with those comfort things and necessities that are often second thoughts. Donations from our partners provide foster families with the ongoing support that they need while providing the children a second chance at happiness in a transitional space.
The goal of My Foster Kids Foundation Inc. is to make a difference in every child’s life that is in the foster care system; to help dedicated, loving foster families with necessities that are often overlooked; and to preserve the well-being of vulnerable children in all communities by ensuring dignity in the process.
The proceeds from Fosters reStore and your donations will help advocate on behalf of the children and foster parents.
You can donate all new and gently used clothing, all sizes, at any of the locations listed here. We would love to take in toys and stuffed animals, but we just don’t have the storage for those items. However, we will take new toys in the package and make sure they get to foster kids for their birthdays or Christmas.
If you have an organization that would like to do a clothing drive or fundraiser, please contact David Fricke at email@example.com and we can tailor a program to fit your specific needs.
Fosters reStore is the retail division of My Foster Kids Foundation, Inc. This is the store where we take all your donations and put them on display for sale. The store is open to the general public to shop, and all profits benefit educational programs and scholarships for foster children.
The best part about Fosters reStore is the foster children get a monthly credit to shop at the store! We do deliver emergency placement clothing and needed items, but there’s nothing better than seeing the smiles on these kids faces as they get to shop for themselves. We’re empowering these kids in a time of their life where they have no control.
You can donate physical items anytime we’re open. Our hours are Monday-Saturday 9am-8pm, and Sunday from 9am-5pm. We take any size and gender of clothing and wearables, including belts, purses, jackets, hats, etc. We cannot take car seats, strollers, or large baby toys and walkers. We will accept new unopened toys.
Keep an eye out for Fosters Pop-Up-Stores, coming to a neighborhood near you! This is a great way to raise money for your own organization. You can host your own sale! And the best part is, we do all the work.
If you would like to host a sale and raise money for your organization, please contact Chris Fricke at (262)620-2351 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
