DSWD Fosters Hope

Going beyond the holiday toy drives…

Over the years, DSWD has generously donated service hours and monetary and in-kind donations to local non-profit agencies during the annual CPA Day of Service as well as Back to School and the Holidays.

From delivering meals to the elderly with Meals On Wheels, walking dogs at Cache Creek Animal Shelter, packing donated food items at the Operation Blessing Food Panty or sorting donated clothing items for the Bridge Teen Center Thrift Store, our team is dedicated to making a positive impact on our community. Our Christmas drives have provided families from Crisis Center for South Suburbia, Operation Christmas, MyJoyfulHeart and Together We Cope with gifts and other essential items such as coats and other cold weather items. Through generous community donation drives we collected over 1000 books to provide to children in underserved areas as well as in domestic violence and homeless shelters.

With the formation of our focused initiative, DSWD Fosters Hope, we are partnering with local foster agencies to provide basic needs and comfort items to children and teens in foster care. Providing Birthday Boxes and Backpacks for children at the SOS Children’s Village as well as offering assistance with basic essentials such as hygiene items and clothing. Our goal is to let these children know that giving goes beyond the holiday season, that everyone deserves the basic necessities of daily life, and that Hope comes in many forms.
