Thank you for supporting our team! Please consider donating, joining the team, or sharing this page so we can raise funds and awareness for local kids in the foster care system. Many kids entering foster care have only the clothes on their backs or their belongings thrown into a trash bag. Eckerd Connects Raising Hope provides safe and welcoming rooms where the kids can "shop" for clothing, shoes, toiletries, and comfort items like teddy bears. All the kids also receive a duffel bag. Let's come together to help this wonderful nonprofit that does for much for local children in need!
