current needs

  • Handmade Birthday Cards– FFC sends out about 160 handmade birthday cards EVERY month! That’s a lot of cards for a lot of kids!
  • Donations of Cars-Some youth transitioning to adulthood face challenges in getting to school and work due to a lack of transportation. Please contact Charmaine Lowe if you’d be willing to donate a reliable car.
  • General Operating Support– FFC has a need for unrestricted funds that can be used to meet the needs of children in foster care as they arise. Examples include: laptop computers, $400; summer camp, average $400/week; and gymnastics class, $80/month. Please contact Helen Preston.
  • Housewarming Basket Donations-If you’d like to organize an event to gather items and assemble baskets at your organization, it’s a fun service project and a great feeling to know you’d helped get a youth set up in their new home! All items must be new and there is a specific list that will be provided of what goes into the baskets. Please contact Lauren Prekop if interested.
  • Donations of Visa, Target, Walmart, and Amazon Gift Cards in all denominations for educational incentives, birthday gifts, and more! You may mail to our office at 2265 Lee Rd, Suite 203, Winter Park, Fl. 32789 or you may drop them off. If you’d like to host a gift card drive or Giving Tree, please contact Lauren Prekop.
  • Hosting Supply Drives- We need people in the community to host supply drives at their organization to collect items for our Safe Space & Supplies Program. This can be done at your business, school, club, place of worship, etc. We are able to provide a customized drive flyer for you. Please contact Lauren Prekop for current supply needs and to initiate.
  • “Expert” Resource Volunteer Bank– We are in need of volunteers qualified to assist the Foundation and foster youth with things like driving lesson instructions, help to purchase a car for the first time, financial planning and education. To volunteer, please complete a volunteer interest Form: https://foundationforfosterchildren.org/get-involved/volunteer/ and let Lauren know if you are especially interested in one particular area.
