Sleep Train Foster Kids is an organization dedicated to making a positive impact on the lives of thousands of foster children in need. Over 60,000 children in California find themselves living in foster care at any given time, many of whom have entered the foster care system with few or no possessions.
There are over 60,000 children in the California foster care system. Many have suffered the effects of poverty, neglect, and even abuse. Studies show that for many foster children, the challenges are just beginning. A growing child requires properly fitting shoes, seasonally appropriate clothing, warm pajamas to sleep in, a comfortable backpack and an ever growing list of school supplies.
We are holding a Back to School Supply Drive for the month of July. Simple yet essential items such as a comfy new backpack, a box of sharp crayons and a colorful new binder can give foster children the confidence they need to make a fresh start at a new school. Donations can be dropped off at one of our locations.
