Caring for America
Foster Angels of Central Texas
Foster Angels of Central Texas helps meet the many unfulfilled needs of children in foster care. They believe all kids deserve to feel “normal”, so they make sure the children receive the basic essentials and, whenever possible, provide life-enhancing opportunities. Through their partnership with Child Protective Services and other non-profit agencies, Foster Angels identifies the gaps and quickly responds to children’s circumstances so they, too, can have supportive, loving childhood experiences, with long-felt positive impact. Since 2010 we have helped over 19,000 children and youth.
Foster Angels purchases gift cards on a weekly basis. A gift card can directly impact a life of a child in need! They will take any denomination. The most requested stores are Walmart, Target, HEB, Amazon, Ross and VISA gift cards. The gift card program is by far the biggest area of need and allows them to continue filling daily requests for children in foster care.
We will collect gift cards and monetary donations for Foster Angels of Central Texas at the May meeting. Make checks payable to Foster Angels of Central Texas. For more information and ways to donate directly see their website at https://fosterangelsctx.org/.
