How Foster Children Shop For Free
My Foster Kids Foundation’s original mission is to provide foster children with free clothing and to ease the financial burden on foster parents. When we first started the foundation, we never expected it to be what it is today, and it’s growing every single day. Donations came in faster than we could give them out, so we had to figure out what to do with the remaining donations. That’s when Fosters reStore was born. A retail division of My Foster Kids Foundation, Inc. a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
Fosters reStore is open to the general public. Anyone can shop. However, foster parents may shop for their foster children at no cost to them. Below are the guidelines for the program.
Each foster parent must produce their placement letter for each child that they are shopping for. The foster parents name must match that on the foster parent’s drivers license or state issued ID.
All foster children regardless of state of residence are eligible for our program. You may receive no-cost clothing for only the foster children in your immediate care and reside at your residence. Each child must have a placement letter issued by the state you reside in.
How Much Clothing Can We Get?
Each foster child is eligible for up to $30 per month in clothing, up to $60 per month per household. Foster parents can earn more for their foster kids by volunteering at our stores. You can earn $10 in foster credit for each hour volunteered, up to $100 maximum credit per month. To setup volunteer hours, please contact us at email@example.com.
My Foster Kids Foundation’s main mission is to provide clothing for foster children. The profits from the retail store will provide educational assistance and scholarships to foster children, and provide operating expenses for our store locations. Foster children do not have to live in the local area to take advantage of our programs.
How Do We Register?
