Birthdays and Holidays
Children in the foster care system face trials and tribulations that most of us cannot fathom. For many of these children, their birthdays and the holidays are not always a happy time due to their unfortunate circumstances. Norfolk Friends of Foster Care is asking you to help bring a little hope and joy to the foster children of Norfolk by granting their gift wishes!
In 2017, the Birthday Project had 100% sponsorship, fulfilling the birthday wishes of over 170 kids, and the Holiday Project was expanded to include foster children from Chesapeake and Portsmouth in addition to Norfolk. Thanks to our sponsors, we guaranteed that over 235 foster children received gifts during the holiday season, helping bring holiday cheer to kids who need it and alleviate pressures that the holidays can bring for both the children and foster parents.
This year, we hope to do even more!
How It Works:
1) Fill out the form below and we will reach out to you to pair you with a child who needs sponsoring. You will receive a child's wish list to help guide you through the process.
2) Go shopping! Gifts are around $45 total for birthdays and $65 for holidays. Donations (in-kind and monetary) are very much appreciated; however, NFFC can reimburse shoppers up to this limit, if needed, when presented with receipts.
3) Wrap, tag and Deliver gifts to NFFC at 999 Waterside Dr. Suite 430, Norfolk, VA 23510, with the wish list paper clipped to the gift, by 25th of the month PRIOR to their birthday. To coordinate gift delivery, please call us at (757) 227-4187.
