Help Support Local Foster Children

Donate online and help a foster child success in school

Donate School Supplies

Back to school shopping—fun, confidence-building, and a classic end-of-summer outing. But with school shopping lists getting longer and longer, it can be challenging for foster families to purchase all the needed supplies. And for foster kids who are moved to a new home unexpectedly, there’s often no time to shop.

That’s where we come in.  With your help, local foster kids and families can get the school supplies they need as soon as they need them. Simple yet essential items such as a comfy new backpack, a box of sharp crayons or a colorful new binder can give foster children the confidence they need to make a fresh start at a new school.

Online Donation

Donating funds online is easy, safe and secure. You have the ability to make a single donation or set up a recurring donation. Your tax-deductible donation will be used by our carefully selected foster care partners to provide foster children with special programs and services. Every donation is appreciated, and every dollar helps!


Host a Drive for Foster Kids

In the U.S., there are over 400,000 children living in foster care. You can help ensure that foster children have the essentials items they need to succeed by hosting your own Sleep Train Foster Kids donation drive. It’s an easy way to give back to your community while leaving the heavy lifting of planning and promotion to us!
