One Such Child Foster care Ministry
We are launching a brand new Foster Care Ministry at Northside Church called One Such Child. The goal of this ministry is to support families in our church and in our community who have selflessly chosen to be foster parents and respite families. We will be working in partnership with FaithBridge Foster Care to provide a community of care to foster children and their families.
DONATION DROP OFF
When kids enter foster care, they usually take few, if any, personal belongings with them. We want to help give kids in care a good start, and we need your help! We are collecting new items to be stuffed into backpacks and given to kids coming into care. All donations will be distributed through FaithBridge Foster Care and local DFCS offices.
Please drop off NEW / unused items to Northside Church
- Backpacks / Small Duffel Bags
- Small Toys / Stuffed Animals
- Art / School Supplies
- New Children's Clothing - All Sizes
- Bibles / Books / Journals
- Toiletry Items
- Kids Movies
- Diapers / Wipes
