Care Closets & Welcome Packs

With new and 'like new' donations from local individuals and businesses, we are able to store and distribute basic necessities as needed. From our Care Closets in Dripping Springs and Round Rock, we are able to collect new and gently used donations to put into customized Welcome Packs for foster children shortly after they are placed in a new home. Inside each Welcome Pack is several days worth of clothes, basic necessities, and comfort items. We also provide special-request items as needed, such as car seats, cribs, beds, strollers, Pack N Plays, developmentally appropriate books and toys, age appropriate bibles, infant equipment, and various common necessities for children. These basic necessities are also available to biological families working to stay in tact and kinship homes caring for the children of family or friends. Our hope is that by making these items readily available, children in our community will have a better chance at stability and appropriate care.

If you or someone you know is in need of a Welcome Pack or items from one of our Care Closets, please click on the Request Form link below and we will contact you shortly:

We are currently accepting the following donations...

  • Car seats less than 5 years old
  • Bunk beds in good condition
  • double strollers
  • Infant carriers
  • Baby monitors
  • New packs of diapers, all sizes
  • New packs of socks, all sizes
  • New underpants, all sizes
  • $15-$20 grocery store gift cards for foster parents

Please note that we are not accepting toys and books at this time due to an overwhelming amount in inventory. Other items we are not able to take: used bottles and cups, used socks and undergarments, and any items that are stained or damaged. We want the children who receive your donations to know that they are truly valued, so we prefer that donations are in new or like new condition- similar to items you would see in a children's consignment store. We are exceedingly grateful when donations come to us washed and sorted as it allows us more time to distribute to the children who need them.
