Christmas
TNC is partnering with Friends of Foster Kids for Christmas 2020. This is a great opportunity to help foster children experience Christmas by getting gifts on their wish list. The Club will be supporting six foster recipients from the Oakland county area, ages three to nineteen. Due to Covid19, we will be doing the wish lists a little different this year. Kimberlee will be collecting cash/checks and doing online shopping to maintain social distancing. Friends of Foster Kids requires all gifts to be delivered to their Van Dyke location between October 31st and November 26th. This shortens the length of time for shopping. Our goal is to collect $2,154 to cover the six wish lists, an average of $358 per child. Please bring your cash/check to our Mini Kickoff gathering Thursday, September 17th at the Raintree Park pavilion on John R or for your convenience use the PayPal donate button below. Please make all checks out to Kimberlee U. and note “FOFK” in memo. A signup sheet/envelope will be available at the gathering for collection. You can also send a cash/check to Kimberlee. If you have any questions please contact Kimberlee U. More details to follow on this much needed organization.
