“Shoeboxes for Foster Kids”
We are thrilled that she has brought this charitable opportunity to LIFE.
LIFE’s Plymouth participants will take the empty shoe boxes and fill them it with age-appropriate items: tooth brushes, hair brushes, pony tail elastics, night lights, books, crayons, colored pencils, playing cards, dominoes, word search books, etc.
LIFE participants have been extremely generous with their time, shopping and organizing these special surprises. The completed boxes are dropped off at the Department of Children and Families in Plymouth, MA.
The first 15 decorated boxes were delivered by Plymouth LIFE members Kate, Nicole and Isaac. A social worker accepted the gifts with a huge smile and exclaimed that “it has been awhile since we had these treats, they are so needed. It helps so much!” Joanne and the Plymouth participants will be back again in a few weeks as they have 20-25 more boxes to be wrapped and delivered. The Pinehills leasing office has offered to put up fliers and collect the shoeboxes for this project as well.
