Providing emergency supplies, resources, and support for foster families and relative caregivers
Foster families and relative caregivers are often given very little notice prior to having children placed in their care. Sometimes, families have only a matter of hours to obtain the food, clothing, and other supplies required to care for a child.
The goal of Caring Closet is to serve local foster families and relative caregivers by providing several days worth of clothing for children placed in their care. Foster families and relative caregivers may contact Caring Closet at any time, day or night, and a pair of volunteers will provide them with a reusable bag of clothing suitable for the child in their care.
In addition, Caring Closet will connect foster families and relative caregivers with other local resources available to them who may be able to provide additional support.
Every Monday at 2 PM, we pack take-home bags of fresh fruit, vegetables, and snacks for the students of Harrington elementary. We meet at Maple Grove apartments so we can have fun packing and building relationships with the senior citizens who reside there. Fire Keepers generously donates the food. So come wash and chop some vegetables with us! Mondays, 2 PM at Maple Grove Apartments, 1041 Maple St. in Albion.
Our chair exercise classes are designed for senior adults to help promote balance, flexibility, and strength. We enjoy meeting together and sharing life events, laughing, and exercising. We currently meet Wednesdays at 10 AM at Caring Community Church. Contact the church office for more information.
