Get Involved

From volunteering to hosting drives there are several ways that our community to help us further our mission. Please contact maggie@fosterangelsctx.org if you would like to find out how you can get involved.

—WE HEART CASEWORKER PARTY—

Every February we honor our caseworkers who work day in and day out to protect children in foster care.  It’s a time when we celebrate them and thank them for their important jobs!  Volunteers are needed to help with securing donations for raffle items, helping with event planning, set up, event registration and tear down.

—SHINING STARS LUNCHEON—

Save the date for the Shining Stars Luncheon on April 30, 2020 as we celebrate ten years of Foster Angels of Central Texas at the JW Marriott Austin. Tickets are $125 and sponsorships start at $1,000.

 

 

 

 

 

—BACK TO SCHOOL DRIVE—

Donate a brand new, filled backpack to help nearly 2,000 children in foster care go back to school this fall with all of the tools they need to succeed. Volunteers will be needed to help sort and fill backpacks the first two weeks of August and then help distribute items to caseworkers and youth.

—AUSTIN SKIPFEST—

On August 24 Foster Angels will host The Austin SkipFest which will directly benefit the 6,300 children in Central Texas. We want to bring back that joyful, knee-raising innocence from childhood.  We expect over 500 skippers this year.  Volunteers are needed to help with day of event logistics to include set up, tear down, registration, and more!  Read more at www.austinskipfest.org.

 

 

 

—TOYS FOR TEENS—

Every holiday season, Foster Angels gets the wish lists of 150+ teens living in foster care and match those with a caring community member to sponsor their holiday gifts! To be notified when the wish lists become available to be sponsored, email toysforteens@fosterangelsctx.org as well as to sign up to be a wrapping volunteer leading up to our distribution day on December 13.

—ADMINISTRATIVE SUPPORT—

Would you rather help out behind the scenes? Foster Angels could always use your help with running errands, thank you letters, office work, newsletter, graphic design, marketing, website updates  or database entry.

 

—GIFT CARDS—

Foster Angels purchases gift cards on a weekly basis. A gift card can directly impact a life of a child in need! We will take any denomination.  The most requested stores are Walmart, Target, HEB, Amazon, Ross and VISA gift cards.   Our gift card program is by far our biggest area of need and allows us to continue filling daily requests for children in foster care.

 

—THROW A PARTY FOR FOSTER ANGELS—
