Do you have access to items that might help a foster or adoptive parent or caregiver? Many families make significant financial sacrifices to care for children who come from hard places or who have special needs. Blessing these families with tangible items can make a huge difference in their lives. Here are some ideas:

  • Themed gift baskets that support personal care, R&R, or fun activities: Family game or movie nights, date nights, guys/girls nights out, cooking, weekend getaways, etc.
  • Gift cards to provide breaks for parents or caregivers: Coffee shops, juice bars, restaurants, beauty salons, bed and bath stores, home furnishing stores, athletic gear stores, etc.
  • Cash or financial donations
  • Accommodations: 2-3 nights at a hotel, vacation home, or rental home for parents who need assistance with lodging during the conference.

Any of these items can be mailed to or dropped off at the Overlake Christian Church office on Monday – Thursday between 9:00 am – 4:00 pm. Please have them clearly marked for The Refresh Conference.
