WELCOME VILLAGE SUPPORTERS!!!!
We are so excited to announce that The Village is GROWING and actively taking steps to expand our mission by opening a PUBLIC LOCATION!
In September 2019, we began collecting community donations and forwarding them to children in Ocean & Monmouth County foster care. Many times, when children are placed in foster homes, they arrive with little to no belongings. Once we set out to change this, the outpouring of local support far exceeded our expectations and became an entire movement of local families supporting foster families! We are proud to share that so far The Village has used the community's donations to provide 93 fully-stocked care packages to children in foster care - And we made it happen with nothing but volunteer time, a concrete basement, and a storage unit. We are so proud of the work we've been doing, but we want to do so much more!
***Our dream is to move all of the donated items to a central, public location where we can share our passion with volunteers and invite foster families to come together and shop for their own needs.***
A generous supporter has offered to donate half of the rent for a location for the Village Foster Family Closet! Together, we've found the perfect place!!! Any additional monthly sponsorships will help make the closet a reality, and we need your help to meet the goal! Every dollar truly makes a difference and brings us one step closer to a grand opening!
We want to thank each and every one of you that has supported the Village and spread the word about this mission!
We believe that in the best and worst of circumstances it takes a village to raise a child. Together, WE ARE THAT VILLAGE. And we invite you to join us in some incredible work.
