Thank you for your donations for the sibling group. We are going to get a gas card and a Walmart card for repairs. If you would like to help with these need please let us know. Every little bit helps. Thank you for your generosity!

Update: A family is generously giving the siblings a car! We are excited for them. They now both have jobs and are working hard to have their 14 year old sibling be able to move in. You still have an opportunity to help, they need car insurance and help with mechanical cost. We all know how hard it is to get a decent financial footing and we would love to give these sibling a good start! If you are interested in donating toward this need please let us know. 100% of your donation goes to the need and is tax deductible. If you click on the blue “learn more” button on this page there is a link to PayPal to make giving easy. Thank you!!

We present needs of kids who are in the foster care system and technically these kids “age out” at 18. There is a sibling group that could use our help. Their ages are 21 and 19. They need a car so they can go to work and sustain themselves. Also, their desire is that their 14 year old sibling can live with them. So, If you have a car sitting in your driveway taking up space this would be an amazing gift for them. All donations are tax deductible!
