Kids still need new shoes. You can help!
This month we started pivoting our clothing department to a “Pop-Up” shop. Since we are limited in the amount of activity that can currently take place at The Foundation due to our physical layout, a few volunteers have come in and prepared racks of clothes that are wheeled outside to our parking lot for guests to shop for what they need. The number of guests allowed to shop at one time is limited to account for social distancing, face masks are required, and sanitizing hands or wearing gloves is requested. We are thrilled that several of our families have been able to access this service and meet the needs of their families for summer clothes.
