What is it?

The Boxes of Love Project is a grassroots effort to provide local children being placed into foster care with a box of new clothing and other comfort items to call their own. Read More…



How can you help?

You can help support The Boxes of Love Project by making a donation of new items.

Items needed include: baby and children’s clothing (all ages, all sizes up to teens), pajamas, shoes (all sizes), socks and underwear, blankets, toiletries (shampoo, body wash, lotion for both babies and older children), diaper wipes, toothbrushes/toothpaste, hairbrushes, towels and washcloths (for both babies and older children), duffel bags and backpacks, miscellaneous baby items (pacifiers, sippy cups, rattles, teething items, small baby toys), books, stickers, coloring books and crayons

Gift cards are another incredibly helpful way to support the project.  Gift cards are used to purchase items that we may not have on hand or items that are specific to a particular child.  Gift cards from Target, Carter’s, Kohl’s and Fred Meyer are particularly helpful.
