Do you have a business or professional service from which foster children can benefit? Do you have tickets to an upcoming family event that a foster family would enjoy?

Whether it is music lessons or orthodontics, our children often need services and programs that are not supported by state and federal dollars.

Foster parents will benefit from donated tickets to amusement parks, museums, concerts, hockey games, baseball games or tickets for family activities. Your generous tax deductible gift will have a lasting impact on a child in need. For more information on donating goods and services, contact the Community Relations Department at 954.414.6000 ext. 8036 by phone or by email.
