1. Last Minute Elf– ’tis the season for the holiday spirit of love and laughter but that doesn’t mean that kids stop coming into foster care. Between now and Saturday, December 15th we are asking for gift card donations. Primarily for the older kids that are coming into care close/during the holiday week. Gift cards will also help act as a filler for families that could maybe use a touch of holiday help.

  • Drop off at 6841 Market St Unit B Wilmington, NC 28405 Tuesday, Thursday or Friday between 9:30-1:30
  • If these date/times don’t work please feel free to email us at info@fosterpantry.com

2. Gift the Giver– as we come together and surround the children in our community, we thought it would be neat to do a drive to also surround their caregivers with love and support!
Gift ideas:
gift baskets
gift cards: visa, port city java, Starbucks, salons, restaurants, movie theater, messages, molly maids, home depot, lowes
local boutique items
a kind card

  • Drop off at 6841 Market St Unit B Wilmington, NC 28405 Tuesday, Thursday or Friday between 9:30-1:30
  • If these date/times don’t work please feel free to email us at info@fosterpantry.com

3. Amazon Smile– set up Hill & High Water Inc. as your Amazon Smile account so that every time you purchase a gift on Amazon a little bit of it come back to the Foster Pantry.

4. Prepare for #GivingTuesday– Giving Tuesday is coming up on November 27th. Foster Pantry is a 501c3 organization so every donation can be written off. Giving Tuesday is a great way to make a monetary donation because so many platforms such as Facebook and PayPal will match dollar for dollar.
