This is a clothing and personal care drive for the foster families in Marquette County. All donations will be handed over to the Foster Closet of Michigan-Marquette County Branch.
The Foster Closet is a non profit organization that helps local foster families. We want to gather the community to help supply the Foster closet with the items they need to benefit the foster families in Marquette County. We also want to spread the word to local foster families that this FREE resource is available to them!
Approximately 13,000 children are in foster care at any given time, just in Michigan. Many of these children arrive in their foster home with little to no belongings. To make their transistions easier and more comforting, the foster closet can supply them with some of the very basic needs right from the start; a nice outfit, a comfort item, and a bag to carry out their new things!
Donations will be collected and then organized into bags by gender and size. This is the second biggest need of the foster closet, volunteers to help organize these donations to make the process most efficient.
If you would like to donate or volunteer, please like and share our event and stay tuned for more details. Also, if you know of any local bussiness who would be willing to host a “donation box” that will be picked up prior to the drive, please let us know, Thanks!
