Drug Take Back Day – April 24, 2021. However, we have drop off sites that are open year round, so don't delay! Drop off your unused medications & keep medications in use, locked up away from children, for a safer home.
As a reminder, maintain proper social distancing & wear a mask when visiting a drug disposal site. Thank you.

Long but bare with us!

Back in February, we had a survey where we asked people who have donated to us if they would be okay with us having a quarterly to semi annual “Bag Sale” of clothing items to sell.

The outcome of that survey was good with every one (except one)—saying they would be okay with it.

This will help us get rid of older clothing that remains on the racks, and a chance for us to rotate out new inventory that has been in totes, unseen since we started up. This will also give us the opportunity to say “yes!” when people ask if we are accepting donations who rather give to us, then other agencies in the area.

Further, it will also assist us in buying the more expensive items many of our families need, and that we cannot provide due to lack of space in the closet, or unable to provide used due to insurance/liability purposes. These items can vary- but examples are strollers, high chairs, infant furniture, etc- also, we give out several gift cards to our families for things we do not have in the store such as special brands (due to health reasons) gift card for footwear, and gift cards for teens to go shopping if we don’t have their styles in store.

With that being said- we have bags of clothing for sale! $10/ bag for sizes : newborn-8 (kids)

We can tailor them to your needs in regard to season- if you would like to place an order let us know and we will coordinate a pickup date/time!

(Will create an event soon!)

A revolving door of new faces, new names, and new routines. This is how life can feel for children under court protection, many of whom are in foster care.

CASA volunteers are a critical source of stability for these children. They take the time to get to know the child and what they need to thrive. #OneConsistentAdult

Happy 1 year anniversary to us!

It has been a year since Heather and I took over operating the Foster Closet of Michigan Delta County branch.

It's been a year that we have been in our current space! YAY us! Roughly 230ish kids in local foster care have been served since we took over. That's almost a kid every week day!

It's been a real learning experience that's for sure but we wouldn't change it!

Northwood's Apostolic Church and their awesome congregation just supplied us with approximately 80 winter coats (kids to adult sizes). Thank You, Thank You, THANK YOU!

If there are any other non-profits within the area who are in need of coats, please contact us to let us know! Board Member, Erinn Anttila is currently working with the school districts within our community to see if any of them are in need at this time.
