ALL SAINTS CHURCH FOSTER CARE PROJECT offers a wonderful program called the Birthday Club. This Birthday Club program provides a birthday gift and card to a foster child. Suggested gift is $20 -$35. They are restarting the club after a temporary suspension due to the pandemic and are looking for volunteers.
We at Friends of Foster Children San Gabriel wanted to share this opportunity with our members in hopes we an help bolster support for the ALL SAINTS CHURCH FOSTER CARE PROJECT Birthday Club. If interested you can click on the link below to find further information and to SIGN UP.
We ensure each child has their own beach towel and bottle of sunscreen for outings to the pool, beach, and water parks. With the help of the National Charity League (NCL) of Pasadena, we collect, sort, and deliver 400 towels and bottles of sunscreen annually.
From July through September, we have a school supply drive. Each year, we distribute around 20,000 items to five (5) residential treatment centers.
Schools supplies include:
- Pens, markers, pencils, and erasers
- Notebooks, binders, and paper
- Rulers, protractors, and calculators
- Backpacks and pencil cases
- Glue sticks
- Flash drives
- Valentines & Easter Treats delivered to homes
- Halloween candy and Movies delivered to homes
- and anything else requested
Local Boy Scout Troops help to sort, package, and carry the boxes out to cars for delivery to the centers.
One of the key components of our School Supply project success is continued funding that we receive from recycling ink cartridges. Keep saving those ink/toner cartridges. You can also take them directly to Staples for recycling using Kathy’s cell phone number 626-993-5629 for up to 20 cartridges per month. When recycling them directly at Staples, please choose the option to have the receipt that cartridges emailed so that we can track when we reach our monthly limit. Thank you to everyone who continues to fund school supplies through this program.
