Additionally we provide each new child coming into care a small care basket. Each basket includes: book, blanket, toothbrush, toothpaste, shampoo, washcloth, one small "new" toy, a flashlight, a coloring book, and crayons. These items sometime vary based on availability. Each basket cost approximately $30 to fill. This is a huge ongoing need and it directly goes into the hand of a child in crisis.
On a regular basis we have needs that we can not meet due to not having the items in stock. These things include twin beds, car seats, formula, diapers, etc. These are crucial needs that have specific timelines to prevent emergencies. Your donations help fund these items and help prevent crisis situations from occuring.
