At Reunion, we have cultivated the rhythm of taking the 5th Sundays throughout the year to serve our partners, cities, and communities.
As part of our 5th Sunday Serve Day this week(March 31st), our community will be partnering with Fostering Hope and The Foster Box. We will be writing notes of appreciation and packing small gifts for local social workers, packing snack packs for children waiting at the DCF offices, sorting clothing donations and assembling hygiene kits.
It is hard for foster parents to have everything a child might need when he or she first arrives in their home. The Foster Box supports families by easing this transition, providing and delivering clothing and other necessities for their new addition.
On Sunday we’ll be packing bags of basic hygiene necessities for children living in foster care. We are asking that everyone from both locations bring supplies from the list below for adding to the bags:
- baby shampoo/wash
- kid shampoo/conditioner
- body wash
- diaper cream
- toothpaste for both babies & kids
- dental floss
- deodorant- gender neutral like Tom’s unscented
If you are a family with new or gently used clothing or gear that your children have grown out of or are no longer using, you can also donate these items by bringing them to Sunday’s gathering. The Foster Box is a 501(c)3 and all gifts are tax-deductible and greatly appreciated!
We will meet at our usually locations and times this Sunday. Come be a part of this awesome opportunity to help serve Foster families, DCF office workers, and Fostering Hope.
