Be a Secret Santa: Make a Child’s Day!
We agree the best part of the holidays is giving, and what better way to give back to the community than to put a smile on a child’s face? This holiday season at Community Fitness we will be participating in Sleep Train’s Foster Kids Toy Drive.
Why Foster Kids?
While foster parents do receive a stipend to cover basic needs, it is often not enough to cover all necessities. Additionally, foster parents can be grandparents or extended family members who also may need a little extra support. That’s where the Sleep Train Foster Kids program and YOU come in–to help fill the gap.
For children who have lost their family and are separated from their siblings, small donations of clothing, school supplies, and toys can mean the world, helping to boost their self-esteem and allowing them to fit in with their peers.
Sleep Train Foster Kids, a program of the Ticket to Dream Foundation™, a recognized 501(c)3 non-profit, has worked diligently with carefully selected non-profit foster care partners to continually work to improve the lives of our local foster children.
With your help, thousands of foster youth will have the school supplies they need to succeed in school, a special gift this holiday season and properly fitting shoes and clothing throughout the year. These simple gifts can introduce newfound hope into the lives of children who have faced many challenges in their lifetimes.
