Donations Needed

Family and Children’s Services (FCS) is looking for donations for their Children’s Closet.  Every year they put together a Holiday Store which features donated items from various companies, organizations, outreach centers, etc. The workers at Family and Children’s Services then open up their store to allow for Foster Families and others, to “shop” at their store. BOCK has participated in this event for several years and would like to do so again.

FCS is looking for donations of new clothing,  coats, hats, and gloves (various sizes, young children to middle school age.) They also are in need of books, toys and games (preferably educational – so no videos, video games, etc. Items should be new and do not need to be wrapped.

The items need to be delivered on December 2nd. So, anyone willing to donate can bring items on Nov 17th  and Dec 1st BOCK meetings. Or if you would like to donate money for the cause instead  please bring it to a Thursday meeting or mail it to: BOCK, P.O. Box 50614, Kalamazoo MI 49005—to arrive before December 1st.
