Just in Time for Foster Youth, a nonprofit organization dedicated ending the cycle of foster care by helping youth leaving the foster care system obtain essential transitional support for self-sufficiency and well being, is holding its annual Just in Time for Foster Youth’s My First Home for the Holidays campaign to help dozens of transitioning youth transform empty apartments into safe, comfortable homes. The goal of this campaign, which takes place from December 1, 2013 – January 11, 2014, is to collect needed cash, gift cards, and in-kind donations of new household items such as pots and pans, small kitchen appliances, lamps, and bedding.
HOW TO DONATE:
- Donate Cash Online at www.jitfosteryouth.org

glassware, dishware, pots & pans, bath towels, full sheets and
