Can you help?

Supplies are getting low for youth girl and boy Fostering Love Kits. If you or your group is looking for a project for the school year, gathering supplies or making kits is a fun way to help kids coming into foster care.

**Does your group need a sewing project? Can you make 6″x12″ pillows for the youth kits?
**How about a book drive for children’s books to include in each kit?
**I could use new small-medium sized stuffed animals, dolls (ethnic included), and small toys.
**Items also needed include – small flashlights, nightlights, brush and comb sets, water bottles, coloring books, puzzle books, cards, crayons, and colored pencils
**Duffle bags or backpacks would be appreciated.

At this time I do not need blankets, toothbrushes, or toothpaste.

Thank you for your help!

Visit the website for the list of all items included in each kit (Infant, youth, and teen)


I’m now a Non-Profit!

Got my non-profit 501(c)3 status effective September 11, 2017!! I’ll be able to give you a contribution letter! Not sure how this new tax law will impact that 😦

Will be updating the wish list items – looks like many of them are currently unavailable.

A BIG Thank You!

Thank you for the donations that continue to come in for Fostering Love Kits!

Ladies from the Columbia River Piecemakers Quilt Guild and the sewing group at Fabrics and Stiches have made and donated blankets, quilts, and diaper bags.

A late thank you to the awesome Scappoose Rodeo Rider 4-H group (led by Erica Rolf Winnestorfer) who solicited funds and donations to make THIRTY, yes THIRTY Fostering Love Kit Backpacks for Columbia County!

If you are looking to donate, backpacks are on sale at Walmart for just under $10!

Columbia County rocks!

Senior Project Student

I had the pleasure of mentoring St Helen’s High School Senior Irene O’Shane Espinoza during her senior project goal of soliciting donations for eight completed Fostering Love Kits. We delivered TEN completed kits to DHS today! She did a fantastic job of recruiting donations through Facebook, local websites, posters, and personal communication with students and teachers. DHS Staff was very appreciative.  Awesome job, Irene! You ROCK!
