FoFK provides Christmas for foster children from Macomb, Oakland and Wayne counties, who have been removed from their homes due to abuse and neglect and placed in temporary housing or shelters. FoFK fulfills each child’s wish list with new items wrapped with care and then works to ensure timely delivery for Christmas.
~ Spirit of Christmas – Volunteers ~
We are very excited for this 2022 upcoming Christmas season! We are in need help in many areas.
Our volunteer schedule starts October 1st with organizing the center for the Spirit of Christmas season and is scheduled tentatively through Dec 20th, which may change (cancelled, if we finish early or extended, if necessary).
**All volunteers must sign up so we can be certain that we have space for all.
~ All volunteers must be 14 years old or older.

Also, many reserved times for Gift Wrappers – Large Volunteer groups are available. If you are a group of 12-16 people that can help wrap gifts, please feel free to select a date/time that has been specially held for large groups in the ‘Gift Wrappers – Large volunteer groups’ section.
We are always in great need of clothing boxes, spools of tape (to fit into desk top dispensers) and wrapping paper. We greatly appreciate if you can bring in any of these items when you volunteer.
**Interested in sponsoring a child? Please email SpiritofChristmas@friendsoffosterkids.org to request a child’s wish list. If you sponsor a child’s wish list, we ask that you please bring in your gifts earlier, from October 15th to November 20th, due to the the lower number of volunteers to process and wrap the gift’s due to the pandemic, even if you are volunteering at a later date. Thank you!**
Thank you so much for being an Angel and helping make the Spirit of Christmas a success, we couldn’t do it without you!!
