Changing the lives of children AND families isn’t something we can do alone – our ability to care for others is largely attributed to the individuals and organizations that generously support us.
We could not continue to meet the needs of the numerous children and families who we serve each year, without the monetary and in-kind donations that we are fortunate enough to receive.
See below for ways you can help Sierra Vista Child & Family Services through in-kind donations.
To make a donation, please contact us at 209-523-4573.
Paper, pens, backpacks and glue are just a few items that you can donate to help a child be successful in school.
$100 - 4 filled backpacks
$250 - 10 filled backpacks
$500 - 20 filled backpacks
Hands, Hearts & Feet
Each fall children and families served by the agency are in need of coats, hats, gloves and boots to keep them warm and dry during the cold winter months.
Many children are in need of items that help them feel warm, snug and safe at night. Donations of blankets, sheets, pillows and quilts will help meet these fundamental needs.
Birthday in a Box
Bring birthday joy to foster children. Items such as cake mixes, small toys, birthday theme paper plates, napkins, and hats are placed in a decorated shoe box and delivered to foster children the week of their birthday. Help a child celebrate their special day with Birthday in a Box!
Children who have been removed from their home often arrive with all their belongings in black plastic garbage bags. Help provide a duffel bag for children to have a safe place of their own for their belongings.
Car seats save lives. Help families who cannot afford this necessary safety item with new infant, toddler and booster car seats.
Gift Cards for Families
We need your support to provide children and families with the nutrition and care they need to survive and grow up strong. Food and basic needs; supplies from local stores help meet this goal.
Research shows that extracurricular activities build self-esteem. Sports equipment for youth activities and local outings (balls, helmets, knee pads, tennis rackets, etc.)
Music, Arts & Sports: When Foster Care parents provide a home for children, many times there isn’t the extra money in their own budget to provide for musical instruments, sports equipment, or lessons for a budding artist.
The Gift of Reading
Books provide mental stimulation and stress reduction. Help our students by providing new books or used books in good condition for our non-public school libraries.
