Sponsor a foster child for Christmas

Jade Parks, our Shelter Plus Case Manager, is coordinating a Christmas program for foster children. There are around 150 tribal children in foster care and we want to make sure they enjoy the holidays, that they have a fun Christmas and that they know that even though they’re not at home with their families, their bigger family, the tribe is still here loving them and taking care of them.

So far, Jade has sponsors for 30 children. That leaves 120 who still need your help. If you can, please sponsor a foster child this Christmas. Jade has wish lists for all of the children and if you don’t have time for the extra shopping, donations of money will pay for the items on the kids’ wish lists. For more information please call Jade 360-716-4059.

And to our families who provide foster care, I want you to know that what you’re doing is very important. It’s not always easy, but you’re making a difference for our children. You’re giving them love and care at a time when they can’t, for whatever reason, be with their families. Thank you for all you do for our children!

If you’re interested in becoming a foster parent contact beda?chelh, 360-716-3284, for more information.
