Virtual Book Drive

Did you know that every welcome pack we deliver includes a book? We long for kids to have essential AND comfort items that bring dignity for their first few moments in foster care. Join us during the month of April to help us build our library to include high quality literature that is inclusive, diverse, and allows for growth in emotional intelligence with lots of comfort and love along the way. The best part about is that it is VIRTUAL so simply click on our amazon wish list and invite your friends to help us stock up! We are averaging 10 welcome packs a week so our goal is to see 120 books of various age levels come in during this drive!
