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. If you have a need for more than this, or have any special requests, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to arriving.
My Foster Kids Foundation's main mission is to provide clothing for foster children. The profits from the retail store provide educational assistance and scholarships to foster children. Foster children do not have to live in the local area to take advantage of our programs.
Thank you to everyone for supporting our mission and the foster children. Many ask us daily how they can help. You can now help by shopping at our store or donation clothing, or simply a monetary donation. We also need leaders to head up clothing drives. If you have an organization that would like to do a clothing drive, please contact Alyssa Blom, Community Outreach Coordinator, at email@example.com.
How Do We Register?
