FRIENDS OF FOSTER KIDS APRIL 2017 NEWSLETTER

A Note from the Founder:

Spirit of Christmas! “Thirteen fifty three”

For 2016, we are excited to report, over thirteen hundred fifty three foster children felt the impact of your generosity and caring! It is breathtaking to realize that each and every child can believe they matter, as they receive a Christmas made especially for them, by Angels like you! Thank you…Thank you…Thank you!!!


Hats off to Grads!

In April, we kickoff our Hats off to Grads program. This program is designed to assist graduate foster kids transition into college dorm life or independent living. Imagine moving from house to house and school to school, without the love and support of a stable family environment, or reliable friends. Yet, each of these graduates had the fortitude to achieve academic success, while coping with these insurmountable odds. Recognizing their extraordinary accomplishment is paramount.

Please email us at info@friendsoffosterkids.org to sponsor a graduate’s list of needs.
Together we are changing lives…one child at a time!

Hats off to Grads Class of 2017

We kick off the program for graduates from Macomb and Oakland counties in April and then by June 9th, the collections will be sorted/ organized for a one-time distribution at their June celebration.

Sponsoring a graduate entails purchasing specific items that the graduate would need, it can vary from graduate to graduate depending if they will be going to college, starting a trade school or setting up independent living. Along with receiving a bio on the graduate you will receive their wish list stating the items they will need. Items could range from graphing calculators, bedding, mini fridges and microwaves to personal care items, household items, laundry and cleaning supplies to storage bins.

Donors can sponsor a graduate on their own or with family members, friends or group of friends! Through out the year some donors have also purchased generic items such as the storage bins and linens as they find them on sale.

Please email or call 586-307-GIFT (4438) if you can help! Angels, like you, make this important program a success!!
