Foster Angels of Central Texas helps meet the many unfulfilled needs of children in foster care. They believe all kids deserve to feel “normal," so they make sure they receive the basic essentials and, whenever possible, provide life-enhancing opportunities.
Through a partnership with Child Protective Services and other nonprofit agencies, Foster Angels identifies the gaps and quickly responds to children's circumstances so they too can have supportive, loving childhood experiences, with long-felt positive impact. Since 2010, they have helped over 20,000 children and youth.
They host several drives throughout the year, whether it is for a new, stuffed backpack to send a child back to school or a teen getting everything on his Christmas list, and always need volunteers to help with the logistics of gathering and distributing those items throughout the year. You can learn more about current volunteer opportunities by emailing email@example.com.
They also provide assistance to children in care in the form of gift cards, and love when offices, organizations, and families host gift card drives that go directly to children in need so that they are able to pick out their own items.
The Austin Skipathon at Mueller Lake Park takes place in September, and you can enjoy music, food, and skipping for a great cause.
