Let’s make heading back to school a little easier for children in our community who may be going without.
One big drive, three community partners.
Adoption is Love Fund was started by a MN adoptive family to show love to MN foster kids by granting wishes of opportunities, experiences and essentials. We believe a gift of love changes the heart of these kids who are going to go out and change the world.
We serve only foster kids in the Sate of MN. There are currently 9,500 MN foster kids and 750 looking for forever families.
Fostering Love Project helps local foster kids and foster families in and around the Twin Cities. Being removed from parents and placed in foster care is a tragic and unfortunate event that can impact a child of the rest of their life. These kids are often removed from their homes with little to no warning, and have few personal belongings.
It is critical for children to feel they have a support system during transitions. County social workers are on the front lines every day supporting the thousands of local children in foster care, but have limited time and resources to fulfill the many needs that exist.
Fostering Love Project partners with these dedicated social workers to build bridges between the community and foster children in need of additional support.
SPAAR is part of Wilder’s 2019 Tools For School Success Campaign. Wilder servers more than 1,000 children in the Saint Paul area. SPAAR’s Goal: 2,5000 notebooks (Plain covers, please)
Notebooks and school supplies will be delivered to Wilder for distribution to schools and families.
