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.
As in 2020, FoFK is continuing to take steps to ensure everyone’s safety while serving the foster children in the tri-county area. You will notice many changes that have been made at the center from plex-glass shields, masks, new capacity guidelines, new sanitizing procedures and scheduling volunteers.
We begin organizing the center in October and begin wrapping Saturday, November 27th. We are tentatively scheduled through Dec 17th, which may change (cancelled, if we finish early or extended, if necessary).
Please sign up to volunteer for this holiday season’s Spirit of Christmas program, we need help in many areas. This sign up is organized by dates, please scroll to the dates you are available and search the areas you are interested in to sign up!

**Due to safety requirements, all volunteers must be 14 years or older, thank you for your understanding**
Please be sure to include your email and cell phone so we can contact you if there are any last minute changes and PLEASE check your email before coming to your shift/s.
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 would truly appreciate if you can bring some with you, 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!!
