Foster Care Kit Collection

Better Together Foster Ministry is collecting items for a new Foster Kit program. When children are removed from unsafe situations and placed in foster care, they often spend 1-2 hours in an office waiting for a placement. This can be a scary, uncertain time. Foster Kits provide children with comfort items for this transition stage, as well as basic necessities for their first night in a new home. A teddy bear, pajamas, and some basic hygiene items can go a long way in helping a child navigate these traumatic events.

Option 1: Build a Kit Online
1. Go to https://www.target.com/gift-registry/ and search First Name: “Better Together” and Last Name: “Foster Care”.
2. Select a registry, follow the directions and ship to Warren.
3. We will provide the duffle bags!

Option 2: Build a Kit and drop off at the Global Cafe
1. Choose Age & Gender
2. Fill a shopping bag with all of the essential items and at least 4 of the “Bonus” items.
3. Download label (link below), indicate the appropriate age/gender of the child and attach the label to the front of the bag.
4. Drop off the bag in the Global Cafe between May 1 and May 30.
