Investing in foster children and foster families to unleash compassion, hope and dignity
Trauma Sensitive Church Training

Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP HERE!

Holiday Hope Boutique: “A Christmas Market and Foster Care Fundraiser”
SATURDAY | NOVEMBER 10 | ROSE DRIVE FRIENDS CHURCH
Join us for an incredible Christmas Market that will feature many vendors of creative, hand-made goods! Get your Christmas shopping done, while supporting foster families in our community! All proceeds from the Holiday Hope Boutique will benefit foster children and foster families through the Foster Care Ministry of Rose Drive Friends Church. Click HERE to learn more!
The Foster Closet
Foster children are often placed in new homes with very few of their own clothes and toys. The Foster Closet will seek to help foster families with donations of basic necessities and will be a place where foster parents can receive appropriate clothes, toys, diapers, bedding, and more!
Click HERE to see a list of items to donate. Donations are accepted on the patio on Sundays or the church office during the week.
If you are a foster family interested in shopping the foster closet, please contact Debbie at email@example.com.
If you are interested in volunteering with the foster closet, please contact Debbie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
