F.A.C.E.S. Comfort Kits contains (new items only, tags left on)

When children enter the foster care system, they frequently arrive at their new foster home with nothing. If they have been allowed to bring along some items, often they have been shoved hastily into a plastic or garbage bag. We think kids going through such a traumatic time deserve better.

A Comfort Kit is a backpack, duffle or diaper bag filled with needed items and essentials intended to help ease the transition for children who are entering a new foster home. Our goal is to offer items that a child would either need or could find comfort in during those first 48 hours in care.  You would be amazed what a fresh pair of jammies and a soft teddy bear can do for a child in crisis. Comfort Kits also allow foster parents to focus solely on a child in those first crucial hours and days instead of rushing out to the store.

** BOOKS – look for diversity in characters!
** Items have to be new with tags left on.
** Please don’t forget to put liquids (body wash) in a ziploc.
** ​Please remember: no food, scissors or razors!

​​Gift cards donations (Visa, Walmart, Pizza, McDonalds, ect…) are also appreciated to give to foster families in times of transition.

Please place gift cards in a ziplock and leave them inside your Bag or Backpack.
