Christmas gifts donations for foster kids

Hi. I am part of a MOMS club and we would like to have a Christmas gift drive for local foster kids. I am looking for a recommendation of an organization or way to best get the things they need to the kids who need them. Thanks!

We have a private foster agengcy that takes the donations and passes them out to their kids. You could also check with your dfs office. They could probably help you.

Yep, you would have to arrange it with either an agency or the county.

You could also see if you have a local foster parent organization. These would be the actual foster parents you probably want to reach.

Thank you ladies! I found a local private agency that will connect us with a few foster families.

I just wanted to say that what you are doing is wonderful. I've had foster children in my home for over a year and other then our agency throwing a party, we haven't received anything for our kiddos from outside agencies. I was surprised at how little is donated for them. Blessings to you guys for caring for them.
