Help our foster kids head back to school with confidence

“Drive through” school supply drive this Friday at Children’s Services Society of Wisconsin

On any given day in Milwaukee, 2,500 children are living in foster care while their families take time to heal. A foster parent provides a temporary family and home for a child until he or she can be reunited safely with his or her biological family or placed in a permanent living situation.

Our foster families and children need support to help send them off to school with a great start, and you can help. We are holding a school supply drive from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. This Friday, Aug. 21 in our parking lot at Children’s Service Society of Wisconsin. Our kids, who range in age from toddlers to teenagers, need supplies that include: backpacks, pens, pencils, notebooks, folders, paper, hand sanitizer and Kleenex. If you don’t have time to shop yourself but want to help, money donations also will be accepted and will be used to purchase these much needed supplies.

If you can’t make it this Friday, donations will continue to be accepted 8:30 a.m. To 5 p.m. Monday, Aug. 24 through Thursday, Aug. 27 at Children’s Service Society.

We are located at 620 South 76th Street, across from State Fair Park and right off of I-94.

And, we always need clothing, diapers, toiletries and suitcases. So, as you shop the sales and are getting your own children ready to head back to school, please consider helping our children in foster care as well. Thanks so much. See you Friday!
