How You Can Help

Thank you for your interest in supporting Amara’s work with children in foster and kinship care, adoptees, and their families. We’re grateful for your help. 

Foster and kinship caregivers often don’t have everything they immediately need when they open their homes and hearts to children who need care. They may suddenly be caring for an eight-year-old, a teenager, or a baby. We try to make sure families have what they need to safely care for children year round. Our families deeply appreciate your donation of new or very gently used gifts. You can make a difference by donating any of these items: 

  • Blankets (for all ages)
  • Books (for all ages)
  • Toys, balls & stuffed animals
  • Games and puzzles (for all ages)
  • Clothes, especially socks, jackets, shoes & underwear (for all ages)
  • Toothbrushes & toothpaste (for all ages)
  • Plastic dishes & utensils for young children
  • Sippy cups
  • Teething rings
  • Baby bottles
  • Car seats
  • Pack & Plays
  • Swaddles
  • Onesies
  • Baby burp cloths
  • Diapers, Pull-Ups, baby wipes & diaper cream
  • Infant formula
