Two local organizations came together to help restock the Burleigh County Social Services closet.
The donations provide foster families with much needed clothing to support these children.
‘Share the Love’ and ‘FIND’ partnered to place clothing bins at New Song Church.
They are collecting clothing and pajamas in sizes that will fit children, from sizes for newborns to teenagers.
New socks, underwear, toiletries and diapers are also needed.
The bin located in the church foyer is already seeing results.
Foster parent and FIND Volunteer Leslie Reisenauer says, “The majority of kids that come into foster care come with the clothes on their back. They don’t have anything, and I mean, getting a kid a wardrobe costs a lot of money. And foster parents: we do receive a little bit of money but it’s not always enough.”
The drive will continue until June 30th.
Donations can be brought by anytime during New Song’s business hours.\
