Glenwood Park Y Collections - Foster Erie Placement Bag Drive
The Glenwood Park YMCA will be collecting for Foster Erie this holiday season.
On any given day in Erie County, there are approximately 400 children in foster care. When brought into foster care, these children are quickly removed from their homes, leaving behind everything they know.
This year, Foster Erie is focusing on bags for children ages 0-10 years. These children are considered “high risk” and the most vulnerable to enter foster care.
We are accepting donations from November 16th-December 16th. You can either fill a bag with the items listed below OR donate single items to help make a bag. You can drop off donations at the front desk at the Glenwood Park YMCA.
We are looking for…
0-24 Months – Diaper bag, outfit, pajamas, swaddle/receiving blanket, towel&washcloth, baby soap&lotion (in ziploc bag), book, wipes, toothbrush&toothpaste (fluoride-free) and socks
2-10 Years – Backpack, outfit, pajamas, stuffed animal or small toy, towel&washcloth, book, toothbrush&toothpaste, underwear and/or pullups, body wash or shampoo (in ziploc bag) and socks
Optional Items – Crayons, coloring book, wipes, hat/mittens, brush/combs
***No food except for formula
If you have any questions, please reach out to Selena Foulk at [email protected] or at (814) 868-0867
THANK YOU FOR MAKING THE HOLIDAYS BRIGHTER FOR THESE CHILDREN.
