If you suspect you are going to need help to provide Christmas for your children, 
do NOT wait until the last minute! Volunteers have families also and need to have 
time in their schedules to provide for their own families. 

Please make arrangements with assistance organizations NO LATER than December 
1st at the latest!! Many have cut-off  dates sooner than this!

And once you ARE on your feet, please remember to give back as you are able.

Also, check with your House of Worship since many provide help with holidays for 
their MEMBERS or regular attenders. Please do NOT call around to churches you do 
not attend as most churches can only supply their own members! Its also not fair to 
expect churches to provide for your family if you are not of that religion OR if you are 
not a believer OR a regular attender / member! 






















FOR FOSTER FAMILIES ONLY!

Website: http://www.downriverfostercloset.com/index.php?page=home
The Downriver Foster closet right now collects donations for gently used children’s clothing 
and items they would need daily for children that are in the foster care system. We provide all 
downriver foster families with items they may need for a placement. Most of the kids that come 
into care come with nothing or very little. Right now, we are a new non-profit just starting out, 
our future goal is to have our own store front. The goal would be to have a nice store that the 
kids felt welcome and safe, we see our storefront having a nice play area for families that have 
more than one kid and while looking for clothes the kids can play. We also would like to hold
weekly classes for foster parents to help with their kid’s hair care, or support groups. We also 
would love to give a few foster kids downriver a scholarship to help them with school or grants 
we can give to families who have kids who want to be involved in sports and they may not be 
able to pay out of pocket for it.

OUR VISION: 
Our vision has allowed us to expand our outreach to 44 of the 83 counties in MI providing ser-
vices and support to foster children and their foster family and grandchildren being raised by 
their grandparents. In Michigan, there are more grandparents raising grandchildren than there are foster children. The services for this sector are deficient, as often these families do not 
qualify for any assistance. Our vision is to ensure that all foster children and children raised 
by their grandparents are not overlooked or forgotten.
&
Attention Social Workers:
You must be a social worker in Michigan to request gifts. You may request gifts for up to 50 
children.The sooner you submit your request the better chance there is that your children will 
receive their specific requests. All requests must be entered by November 1 in order to be filled 
in time for Christmas. Please be patient after you submit your request for access, you will receive 
an email once your access is granted.

Our organization provides clothing, underclothing, toys, shoes, baby equipment, gear and in some cases furniture, to children placed in the foster care system in State of MI. These items 
are new and like new items that have been donated to us. Children are often placed into foster 
care with no personal items and in many cases they come into care with only the clothes on 
their back. Our organization provides these kids with stylish new or like new clothing and per-
sonal items helping to begin the process of rebuilding their self-esteem and providing them 
with belongings they can call their own. Foster parents and their children are able to come into 
our facilities and pick out the items they need, for free, providing the children with the ability to 
offer input in wardrobe choices and allowing them to express their personal tastes and indivi-
duality, another big step in helping these children rebuild their lives and self-esteem. Our organ-
ization never charges for these services or items. Contact them directly!
