Ethics in Action: Decorate Giving Trees for Children in Foster Care

Voices for Children advocates for abused and neglected children and youth in St. Louis by representing their best interests in court and in the community. While working toward a safe home with a forever family, Voices’ teams of child advocates—CASA volunteers, social work professionals and child advocacy attorneys—work on behalf of each child to expedite vital health, mental health and educational services. Today, there are over 1,500 St. Louis children in foster care. On any given day, Voices teams of child advocates represent nearly 600 of these children.

For more than 10 years, Whole Foods and their shoppers have helped make the holidays brighter for kids in foster care.  Voices for Children needs our help setting up the giving tree for the upcoming holidays.

How the Giving Trees work:

• Each Whole Foods location's Giving Tree has ornaments with the holiday gift wishes of the more than 500 children Voices serves.

• Shoppers can take as many ornaments as they would like to purchase the requested gifts.

• All gifts should be dropped off to either Whole Foods location (Brentwood or Chesterfield) no later than Monday, December 9, 2013

• Gifts must be brand new and unwrapped.

• Gift should be dropped off with the ornament attached or be labeled with the recipient's name.

The holiday wish list can also be found here.

No specific volunteer requirements, other than being able to bend and reach, and have fun!

Ethics in Action is a volunteer brigade of the St Louis Coalition of Reason.

    I haven't been to any meetups yet, but am interested in volunteering. Do you need more people for this? Looks like it's just helping to setup the tree / ornaments?

      Sorry for the silence, I haven't heard anything from the Volunteers Beyond Belief team in Illinois.
