The holidays can be an extremely difficult time for foster children and parents. Foster kids may be feeling anxious and overwhelmed about being apart from their families of origin during the holidays and foster parents may be struggling with the stress of having additional children in their homes. By partnering with DePelchin Children’s Center and Teen Reach Adventure Camp (TRAC), you can demonstrate the hope given to us by the gospel and share the love of God who doesn’t simply provide, but is extravagant in His love for us this Christmas season!
DePelchin and TRAC are asking for your support by providing themed and age-appropriate gift baskets for the foster families that they serve! Upon sign up, you’ll be given instruction for putting the basket together. Encouraging cards and notes can be included!
For DePelchin, you can plan to drop off baskets at their offices (1812 Centre Creek Drive, Suite 200, Austin, Texas 78754) between 9am-3pm on December 1–2 and December 5–9. For TRAC, you can drop off baskets at Texan Eye Care (925 Starwood Dr, Cedar Park, TX 78613) between 9am-3pm on December 1–2 and December 5–9.
Please note, gift baskets are not donations to The Austin Stone and are not eligible for inclusion in giving statements of charitable donations to the church.
