Be an Angel to a Foster Child, volunteer with Friends of Foster Kids
Volunteers are our foundation, Friends of Foster Kids need your help! Be a part of our Angel network year-round.
Calling all of our wonderful Angel volunteers!
We begin our 10th year with excitement and enthusiasm to help even more local foster children this upcoming holiday season! With this excitement also comes the need for many volunteers, from wrappers to organizers and more this Christmas season!
We are now located at:
(NE corner of 17 Mile & Van Dyke, next to Burlington Coat Factory)
We begin Saturday December 1st and are tentatively scheduled through Dec 21, which may change (canceled, if we finish early or extended, if necessary).
We have many areas that we are in need of help. 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! (You can also view this sign up as a calendar, the calendar view button is located to the right side of the blue header bar just below this message)
**NEW in 2018!**
Group Tours and reserved times for Gift Wrappers – Large Volunteer groups. (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 have some supplies for wrapping but 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. **Also, due to safety requirements, there are age requirements on each volunteer position**
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.
**Sponsoring a child? Please bring in your gifts by Dec.2, even if you 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!!

Friends of Foster Kids is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. This volunteer organization is made of people from all walks of life. People just like you, that want to make a difference in a child’s world. We are “Friends of Foster Kids”. Foster kids are children that, through no fault of their own, have been removed from their homes, due to neglect or abuse, and placed in temporary housing. These events happen so quickly, that often times the children have no opportunity to gather their belongings. Basic things such as clothing, underwear, a pillow…things we take for granted…toothpaste, photos…little things that help them feel safe and secure. We try to help…We let them know they are not alone…they are not forgotten.
