Through the generosity of our members our annual school supply drive is already a success!
Each year, we distribute around 20,000 items to the residential centers supported by FOFC.
Schools supplies include:
Pens, markers, pencils, and erasers
Notebooks, binders, and paper
Rulers, protractors, and calculators
Backpacks and pencil cases
Thank you for your support!
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE, for a successful year for Sugar Plum 2022! Thanks to all our FOFC elves and all the support from the community, families, volunteers and generous donors. Sugar Plum 2022 collected 5100+ gifts that benefited 258 children and 17 facilities.
Sugar Plum 2023 is in the works and once again we will need volunteers.
We are so appreciative and thankful for all the support.
We at Friends of Foster Children San Gabriel wanted to share this wonderful opportunity with our members in hopes we can help bolster support for the ALL SAINTS CHURCH FOSTER CARE PROJECTs. If interested you can click on the link below to find further information and to SIGN UP.

FOFC is proud to have the support of our local communities. However, with the vast turnover and ever-increasing number of children, there is always a need.
Monetary donations are always welcomed and appreciated.
Welcome to Friends of Foster Children (FOFC)! We have been serving foster children in the San Gabriel Valley since 1976. We are always looking for new members to join us and help make a foster child's life a little brighter.
FOFC is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization. We have no paid staff and no facility, so less than 6% of our annual budget is spent on operating costs. A total of 94% of every donated dollar is applied to the children's needs.
Various fundraisers and gift collections throughout the year are designed to help foster children in residential treatment centers in the San Gabriel Valley. We also assist newly emancipated foster teens as they learn to set up their own homes, continue their education, and begin their journey of being self-supporting.
