Family & Children’s Place relies on the generosity of our community to help us provide for the thousands of families and children we serve annually. You can provide services that would greatly assist in our efforts to help families become healthy, safe and stable.
See below for several ways you can help Family and Children’s Place through in-kind donations. To make a donation, please contact us at 502-893-3900 x260.
Family and Children’s Place can always make use of the following items:
The Kosair Charities Child Advocacy Center is always in need of snacks and drinks (juice boxes, etc.) to give to children who are hungry while at the facility. These clients are frequently here for 2 to 3 hours and many of them have not been fed before arriving. If you would like to donate these particular items, call the KCCAC at 502-893-3900.
Art Supplies (crayons, markers, construction paper, craft supplies, glue sticks, etc.)
School Supplies (pencils, pens, wide-ruled notebooks, folders, etc.)
Toys (infant through preschool)
Gift Card Donations
Helping families in our community can be as simple as buying a gift card! Because each family has their own needs, we often issue gift cards as incentives for completing various programs, seeking proper treatment, and attending all scheduled appointments. The donation of gift cards allows Family and Children’s Place to put more funding into specialized staff and programming, medial examinations, and improving our facilities. If you would like to donate gift cards, see the list below of recommended establishments. We ask that gift card amounts be of $15 or more:
Toys ‘R Us
Blankets and Stuffed Animals
Discomfort and anxiety often accompany medical examinations and forensic interviews that take place as a result of abuse, and the folks at the Child Advocacy Center offer children a blanket to help brighten their day. New and gently used items can be donated.
Holiday Support Program
The children and families we serve face challenges many of us cannot begin to fathom. Exposure to abuse, violence, unstable home environments, and often financial strain can leave little opportunity to enjoy the holidays. You can help us ensure that these families have a memorable holiday season through the 2011 Holiday Support Program. Sponsors will be matched with a child and provided specific information – age, gender, clothing sizes and a wish list. Then sponsors shop for holiday gifts for the child.
Anyone can participate; individuals, a family, friends, church group, boy scout troupe, fraternity and sororities, businesses, etc. Please call Dave Jordahl at (502)266-5771 to learn more about how you can brighten the holidays for one of the thousands of families we serve. This is a great way to get into the holiday spirit, and you will truly make a difference.
Don’t have time to shop? You can still help by making a monetary donation to the Holiday Support Program. Our agency will purchase gift certificates and wish list items for those families not already chosen for adoption. Clothing, toys and other household necessities are also graciously accepted and will be given to these individuals as well.
Thank you for your commitment to helping families and children in our community.
