Help a Foster Family

You can show your appreciation and support to foster parents by volunteering to help them out. Here are some ideas:

  • offer to babysit for free
  • make a meal
  • clean the house
  • give free diapers and other supplies
  • tutor the children
  • be a mentor
  • ask the family what needs they have and offer to help

Shop Online Gift Catalogs

You can buy items for orphans from online catalogs. Children will enjoy looking through the sites and picking out things to give.

Samaritan’s Purse Catalog

World Vision

Make and Send Care Packs

Global Aid Network, a ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ, reaches thousands of orphans and other needy children through their Care Packs project. The Care Packs are personally delivered by outreach missionary teams, who also share the Good News of Jesus Christ with the children and their adult caregivers.

You can help by putting together a Care Pack. Items to include are:

  • 2 pencils
  • 2 ballpoint pens
  • 1 package 8-12 colored pencils
  • 1 box of crayons (16-24 pack)
  • 1 notebook or tablet (6″x7″ minimum)
  • 1 ruler (with metric)
  • 1 eraser (not pencil top kind)
  • 1 small pencil sharpener
  • 1 package of colorful stickers
  • 1 toothbrush (in original package)
  • 1 comb
  • 1 letter and photo of you
  • 1-2 gallon size “zipper bag”
  • $5 per Care Pack to help deliver overseas

To each Care Pack, Global Aid Network will add: a gospel bead bracelet with a printed explanation, a translated copy of a children’s Bible storybook and a book like Josh McDowell’s More Than a Carpenter with the gospel of John.
