Purposeful Partner for May 19, 2021
The Foster Closet located in Menomonie, WI, provides clothing and other basic necessities to children and young adults entering foster care. Children often come into a care home with nothing but the clothes they are wearing and are leaving behind their favorite blanket, toy, pet and loved ones. This can be a very traumatic time. Simple things like providing a Welcome Bag as a child enters foster care can be just enough to give them a sense of hope during a confusing time. This is a free service for foster families, children and social workers and is 100% reliant on donations from the community that serves children in West Central Wisconsin. No child is turned away.
Most needed tangible items include:
New Men's Underwear size XS to L
New Women's Underwear size XS to L
Water bottles for welcome backpacks
Single subject notebooks for school supply program.
Medium to Large duffle bags
Monetary donations are also appreciated and can be donated on our website during registration or given at the May 19th luncheon.

We hear a lot about SELF-CARE, but do we really know what that looks like? Here are a few suggestions:
Think of something that makes you feel cared for or that brings you joy and do that! Care for yourself! You are always pouring so much into others. Let’s pause this month and do something to take care of YOU!
And remember to share these great ideas on Facebook so we can encourage others to do the same.
