SUNDAY, OCTOBER 13

10am - 12pm: ASSISTANCE LEAGUE LA

Join us for a unique opportunity for local families to give back to children in need by making no-sew blankets that will be given to foster youth served by our Foster Children’s Resource Center (FCRC)*. All ages of volunteers are welcome and encouraged to attend this FREE event, including parents with infants!

*About FCRC: Foster children are frequently moved from one home to another during a crisis with only the clothes on their backs. FCRC provides emergency clothing and necessities to children referred by the Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS). Located in Northridge, our center gives each child new school clothing, a jacket, pajamas, socks, underwear, personal care items, a backpack, school supplies, a book, and a toy. Each child is given personal attention and treated with dignity and respect, helping them to feel special. Social workers, foster parents and family members report that after visiting the Center, children experience a boost in self-esteem and improved school attendance and performance.
