It's the middle of summer, but school's almost back in session. CRAZY?!

An easy way to support local foster, adoptive and kinship families is by filling up a Care Box with school supplies, backpacks and gift cards for back-to-school clothes and shoes.

BACK -TO-SCHOOL  SUPPLY  DRIVE

We are partnering with TRUE GRACE CHURCH, JAMES MATTHEW COMMISSION, THE LOCAL CHURCH AND CHURCH OF LIVING WATER to collect school supplies for foster, adoptive and kinship families in the Thurston County area.
