Business Gift Certificates - Whatever your business does that might be enjoyed by a child or youth and an adult escort, we need donated gift certificates for fun activities, i.e. movie tickets, rides, bowling, haircuts, makeovers, clothing, food coupons, sporting events, concert passes, instruction, entertainment, etc. These will be used for adoption recruitment activities throughout the year.

We express our deep gratitude to our supporters. Your donations make a difference in the quality of services we are able to provide for children waiting in foster care.
