Household Goods for Foster Youth

Foster youth are removed from their homes for various reasons, including abuse, neglect or abandonment. It is not uncommon to hear that a child may move 15 times to different homes. Their transition to adulthood is even more difficult. Support ends at 18 years of age, and earlier for emancipated youth.

This month’s project is geared to helping foster youth who are aging out of the system and living on their own. We will collect a variety of household items, including dishes, silverware, pots and pans, cleaning supplies, towels and linen. Items may be used, but clean and in good condition.

For more information, please contact Marilyn Ponseggi at (619) 444-9163. Please bring all donations to the white Social Action barrel in the front office lobby of the Temple, and members of the committee will deliver them to South Bay Community Services for distribution.
