We care about your safety

Given the current situation regarding COVID-19 community health and safety concerns, we have made adjustments to our event to ensure adherence to our city, county, and state safety measures.

Here are our plans...

1) The event will be held in the well ventilated Pavilion at Cross Point Church.

2) Only 3 households will be volunteering per shift.

3) The event will be held all day to space out the amount of people helping during each shift.

4) Masks and gloves will be required.

5) Social Distancing will be enforced.

6) Routine sanitization will occur between each shift.

"We kindly ask that you respect the safety of all involved in this amazing day by following health and safety protocols.  While performing your project, please practice social distancing of 6+ feet, wear a face mask, and regularly sanitize your hands.  If you feel at all ill, we ask that you refrain from participation in this event."

- LOVE ALL OUR KIDS TEAM

Thanks to our annual sponsors

We believe in making sure every child feels seen, valued, and loved. 

One way we do this is by ensuring every child is given a comfort kit as they enter the foster care system.  These kits are filled with things that meet both the physical and emotional needs of a child on what is probably one of the most frightening days of their life.  A snack to help ease the pang of hunger. A small toy or coloring book to give them something to do in the hours they wait to determine where they will be going.  A blanket or stuffed animal to cuddle on that first scary night in a new home.  An encouraging note that says "We see you.  You are important. You matter to us."  Each comfort kit is unique and special just like the kids we serve.

Comfort Kits began in a garage, back in the fall of 2013.  Now, we help inspire the community to reach out to foster children by putting together these comfort kits at our annual Christmas Comfort Kit Drive. On the first Saturday of December, hundreds of volunteers gather to help assemble, organize and distribute over 1,000 comfort kits each year!
