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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are interested in volunteering with the foster closet, please contact Debbie at email@example.com.
OC United is a non-profit in Fullerton focused on unleashing compassion and empowering the vulnerable. You can get involved with foster care through OC United in many different ways! Click HERE for more info.
