Well another opportunity to serve has come up, and I'm ready to take on the challenge! I am excited to be back involved with Foster Care. I am now taking in donations of clothing, toys and baby equipment. I will be sorting them all , and putting them in the Resource centers storage unit for foster parents who need anything for their foster, or adopted children. When I got the call yesterday, I was so excited. I have been having a hard time not being involved in helping the kids in foster care. The DI (Deseret Industries) is no longer taking baby equipment. It has been killing me to see DI taking donations from people, and throwing them straight into the dumpster. I tried to work something out with them last year, that would let those who are donating be more aware of this, and let them know of the alternatives, such as donating to the foster care foundation. Unfortunatly, I recieved an answer back that DI wouldn't be able to do this. Kid to Kid in bountiful donates to the foundation which is so helpful. The things they cannot use or take, I get to pick up, and take to the resource center, Thanks Kid to Kid. We as foster families appreciate it!
