Season of Giving – Now More Than Ever

By November 10, 2011July 18th, 2017Donor-focused, General

Here at the Utah Foster Care Foundation, we have been busy making our lists and checking them twice! It is our goal to make sure each child in the licensed foster families we serve has his or her wishes met for Christmas.

Specific gift requests from individual children are now in the hands of local businesses and churches along the Wasatch Front. But you can still help!

If you would like to donate to a child in foster care, gift cards and cash are most appreciated and needed. Any last-minute requests will be met with this funding.

How can you donate? Mail or bring checks to:

Utah Foster Care Foundation
Attn: Giving Tree
5296 South Commerce Drive (320 West), Suite 400
Murray, UT 84107

For debit or credit card transactions, call 1 (877) 505-5437.

Any contributions that are not utilized specifically for needs during the holiday season will be used to meet the needs of children throughout the remainder of the year.

Many thanks to the generous community members and businesses that help make our Giving Tree Program a success, including Ogden Rotary Club, United Men’s Methodist Assn., Beehive Grill, Eden 2nd Ward, Parker Corp., Hilltop United Methodist Church, Bobby Lawrence Karate Studios, TD Williamson, Electrical Consultants, Inc., Stevens Henager College, Strong & Hanni, and the following Catholic churches: St. Mary’s, St. James, St. Florence and St. Joseph. Two young men are also collecting gifts as part of their Eagle Scout projects.

The Uintah Basin is also joining in on holiday giving through Wal-mart and Our Savior Lutheran Church in Vernal.

And in Price, employees from the Eastern Utah Credit Union will be serving up dinner and gifts for our dedicated foster families there.

Happy Holidays!
