Washington, DC, February 01, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- The leading provider of nonprofit all-in-one campaigns, Get Involved Company, and the nation’s leading advocate of foster care children, The Linner Foundation, are partnering to support foster children in the DC area as they move from an existing foster care home to a new one via the, “February is New Home Kit for Foster Kids Month” campaign.
“Children often leave their current foster care homes with little to no possessions of their own,” said Oliver Roy, founder and Executive Director, The Linner Foundation. “This adds a significant level of stress to an already highly uncertain situation for these young children. We can all help ease some of their fears by providing them with a simple gift of toiletries and grooming items that solely belong to them as they transition to a new home.”
The New Home Kits for Foster Care Kids campaign helps provide new home kits for 75 foster care children in the Washington, DC area. This campaign, dedicated to the month of February, increases the awareness of the stresses facing foster care children and helps meet some of their basic needs as they navigate through the foster care system.
“We joined the campaign as soon as we became aware of the heartbreaking situation for foster care children,” said Carol O’Brien, CEO and cofounder of Get Involved Company. “We started our company to help people get involved in causes just like this—to raise awareness, funds, and volunteers to help address challenges many of us aren’t even aware exist.”
