There are many needs in our county and state for children in the foster care system. The Mississippi Department of Child Protection Services could really use donations. Here is a list of needed items.
1. Baby beds
2. Car seats
3. Mattresses for the baby beds
4. Pack and Plays
5. Clothes for our teenagers
6. Gift cards at eating places for the kids when they have court appearances. (McDonald’s etc.)
7. Hygiene Products
You can also make a monetary donation to MDCPS and mail to P.O. Drawer 240, Hernando, MS 38632, Attn: Francine Washington. This will enable them to buy items that they need. If you would like more information or to know how you, your company or church can get involved, please contact Francine Washington at her email address, Francine.Washington@mdcps.ms.gov, or call her at 662-469-8012.
Any help that you can provide will be greatly appreciated!
