Grant a wish for a foster child | CHOICES Christmas Drive

posted by: aschiffer | Tuesday 10/28/14

Hello CHOICES supporters, this is the time of year that our kids really need you to show them you care! Christmas can a difficult time for a child in foster care. Just imagine being away from your family during the holiday season…when everyone else is gathering together with their family.

This is why your donations and support mean so much this time of year, as it really is a time of joy, hope and happiness. We need your help today to share those feelings with our kids and families.  We ask each of you to join in our “Santa’s Helper” program to grant a wish of a child or adopt a family. There are many ways to get involved, and we probably have something that will fit you, your business, church or organization.

Not only will you be spreading Christmas cheer, but all donations stay local and benefit kids and families living in Miami Valley region. There are many ways to help…and if you know you are ready to make a child smile this Christmas you can click here and donate online!

If you are the shopping type and want to buy a gift for a child there are two options:

  • Contact Ashley Schiffer to be matched with a specific child at aschiffer@choicesfostercare.com or (937) 264-0084 ext. 122
  • Check out our Holiday Wish List by clicking here (Gift cards are the most requested item for our teens)

 

We also can assemble a “giving tree” with ornaments for your group or business – again contact Ashley to coordinate. Our party for foster families is on December 12th, now is the time to get involved so there is plenty of time to shop!

Checks can be mailed to: CHOICES Inc. 1785 Big Hill Rd. Dayton, OH 45439

Adopt a Family Opportunity | CHOICES Christmas

posted by: aschiffer |

We are looking for partners for our Adopt a Family Program for the Dayton and surrounding areas. This program has been growing the past three years – last year our donors provided gifts and much needed items to over 75 kids and parents in the area.

Many times if we can’t help the family they will not celebrate Christmas. A little support goes a long way to bring joy to our kids and Home-Based families. We would love to match you up with a family.

Families are identified by our caseworkers who are working in the home with at least one of the children. CHOICES provides mental health services to children who are Medicaid eligible. While we work with the child and family we do our best to link to other programs and provide support from our donors. (Christmas is an extra special time for us to extend a helping hand)

To be matched with a family please contact Ashley Schiffer, Development Director at (937) 264-0084 ext. 122 or aschiffer@choicesfostercare.com

You can also easily donate online by clicking here, just select the Adopt A family designation! We will need the gifts for the family in need by Monday, December 22nd.

Family size and needs vary for our Adopt a Family opportunity, but we can work with you to figure out what works best for everyone involved. It is ONLY with community generosity and support we are able to provide Christmas assistance. Thank you for helping us spread Christmas joy!

Donations for Sports Fees Needed | Foster Youth wants to Wrestle

posted by: aschiffer | Wednesday 10/22/14

The CHOICES family always gets excited when a youth in one of our programs wants to try something new.  Sebastian is a 12 year old boy in our foster care program and he has expressed an interest in wrestling this year.

Sebastian is in the 6th grade, and prior to foster care he was not given many opportunities to try new things. He was living with his Great-Grandmother who was unable to give him the opportunities to play sports or be active in other school clubs.

We know that our donors can rally around Sebastian so that he can try this sport for the first time. Sebastian’s fees to participate are $100.  You can donate easily online by clicking here.

Sebastian has only been with us for about a month, this is our chance to show him what CHOICES is all about….saying YES to our KIDS! His foster parents are very supportive and have committed to buy him the gear he needs like shoes and proper attire.

Questions? Contact Ashley Schiffer, Development Director at (937) 264-0084 ext. 122 or aschiffer@choicesfostercare.com
