Ways we can help DC foster children

CFSA is requesting volunteers to help out the agency's Partners for Kids in Care program.   Volunteers are urgently needed to help with
  • Receiving and distributing donations
  • Sorting clothes and supplies in the Children’s Closet/Donation Center
  • Sorting books on our Children’s Library Shelves

To volunteer, contact Beatrice Williar via email or phone, (202) 727-7101.   This is a perfect opportunity for adults or youth in need of community service hours.


In other CFSA news, they are once again gearing up for prom season.   As pointed out in this Thoughts and Observations.... blog post, you can do some spring cleaning and help out kids in foster care at the same time!

Project Prom is CFSA's Annual Project Prom Collection event.   This year, the collection takes place from April 11 - 15 from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm at Child & Family Services Agency (400 6th St SW in the first floor Children’s Donation Center).   Items needed include formal dresses, suits, shoes, jewelry, and accessories.

CFSA's Partners for Kids in Care is also recruiting volunteers for the May 7 Annual Project Prom Boutique Day.   The purpose of this one-day event is to pamper the teens--help them find the right outfit and get a make-over from make-up artists.

Interested in one or both prom volunteer opps?   Contact Beatrice Williar via email or phone, (202) 727-7101.
