Kids Get Kids in Foster Care
Back to School
Our Program Director and her kids, known as The Donut Council, are focusing on 8 key principles this summer, the first being service. One way they are giving back is by collecting 75 backpacks for kids in foster care for our annual backpack drive. They are collecting new backpacks from family, friends, and neighbors and will fill each one with all of the needed supplies for back to school! They can’t wait to deliver them to a local rainbow room in August! Learn how you and your kids can be like The Donut Council and help us collect stuffed backpacks all summer. The next time you're in a Target or Wal Mart, take the time for you or your kiddo to fill a backpack for a child in care to start the new school year with. In total, we are collecting over 1,300 backpacks to children in care so that they can start school prepared with all of the essentials to succeed.
We are the happy recipients of the Girls Giving Grants $8,200 grant for beds from Impact Austin!
We are so thankful to the 82 girls on the Girls Giving Grant Committee through Impact Austin that chose Foster Angels as their grantee. The $8,200 that these young ladies (grades 8-12) have pulled together will provide new beds and bedding for 30+ children in foster care. Not only did we receive new funding through this program, but we also gained our summer intern, Caroline Keyes! (pictured third from the right) Caroline has been a member of Girls Giving Grants for five years, during which she acted as secretary, historian, and ARC vice chair. This year, she was a member of the ARC who represented Foster Angels’s grant throughout the review process and we are now proud to have her through the summer as out intern before she heads off to college to attend Stanford University!
