Every year Friends of Foster Children of San Gabriel Valley does its best to bring Valentine’s to the homes and children we support.  This year we have 52 Boys that we hope to make Valentine's Day Special.  If you would like to help with donations, we would welcome candy and $10 gift cards.  Gift cards can be purchased for In N Out, McDonald’s and Target.  Please keep the gift cards to $10. 

Please remember you can always use the RED DONATE button at the top of the page if you want to participate but do not have the time to shop.  If you are interested in being a donor or want to drop of purchased Valentine’s items, please contact Debbie at 626.285.4305

All donations for Valentine’s Day need to be received no later than Feb 6th so our cupids can prep the packages for the children. 





Another Successful Year for Sugar Plum 2022!


THANK YOU TO EVERYONE, it was another successful year for Sugar Plum 2022!  Thanks to all our FOFC elves and all the support from the community, families, volunteers and generous donors. 

A special thank you to all our tree sitters who graciously donated their time.

Sugar Plum collected 5100+ gifts that benefited 258 children and 17 facilities.  There was an additional 119 gifts that came in after Christmas which will be distributed and enjoyed.  We are so appreciative and thankful for all the support.

We hope to see everyone next year!

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.
