2nd Annual Toy Drive supporting Foster Champs of Maple Valley!

November 16 @ 10:30 am - November 17 @ 9:00 pm

We are excited for our 2nd Annual Toy Drive supporting Foster Champs of Maple Valley!
Bring a toy for a child in need this Christmas along with your receipt and we’ll give you Fivestars Reward Points for the amount you spent.
Here’s more information about Foster Champs
“OUR MISSION
Foster Champs exists with the intent to facilitate and support local foster families with the unconditional commitment of closing the gap between what foster families deserve and what they receive. Foster Champs is a body of individuals whom believe in the importance of nurturing and advocating for foster families.
WHY?
Because every child deserves a forever family and until that is achieved we are there to show the child he is loved and cared for. We believe every child should be afforded similar opportunities as other children like attend a friends birthday party (with a gift), join soccer or dance club, graduation cap and gown, and feel like they belong and that their life matters!
OUR STORY
Foster Champs was founded in 2012 by Kim Emmons, Daniel Burleigh and Lisa Wiscomb because of the strong need of support by our local foster families. Our parent company is Social Enterprises, established in 2009 by Daniel Burleigh. We are a 501(3)c public charity nonprofit organization. All monies and supplies raised under Foster Champs stays within Foster Champs.
There is no funding for the extra events like birthdays, Christmas, summer fun, seasonal clothing, back packs, duffle bags and school supplies. Foster Champs relies on the community 100% to accomplish our mission to raise the level of care for foster kids to meet the basic care level of their counterparts.
We have 150 children that we are tending to this holiday season. Each will receive a new pair of shoes and a toy from Santa at our party. AND the families that do need extra help for under the tree we are providing toys for them as well.
Last year we brought in more toys than what we needed for the holidays. What we do with the surplus is add it to our birthday prizes. Since there is no funding for birthdays either the parents can come shop in our pantry for birthday presents.”
