A couple of years ago our church began a Teen Night Out program and we invited our middle and high school camp attendees (boys and girls) to join us once a month for an excursion. For our first excursion of the year we take the kids back to school shopping and that is where you can help. Our church budget simply can't afford to take 12-15 kids shopping!
Many foster kids NEVER get to shop for new clothes. They are taken to Goodwill, or a consignment shop or happy with hand me downs because many of the foster homes where they are placed are with relatives who don't have a lot of money. And when they lived with their parents - they often lived in deep poverty. We want to take our Teen Night Out kids to the mall and let them shop and we want enough money for each kid so that they can buy WHATEVER they want - new Vans or a cool baseball cap, a cute outfit, or simply new jeans. We are hoping they won't spend the money on basic necessities! Whatever funds we raise will be divided equally among the kids. So please give 10, 15, or 20 dollars and ask YOUR kids if they are willing to donate some of their back to school budget.
