Foster Care Christmas Outreach

We are so excited to announce that we’ll be collecting gift cards for teens in foster care again this year! Once again, we are partnering with churches across Ohio to help ensure that every teen in foster care has an incredible Christmas. Together with Summit County Children Services, RLC has made it our mission to make sure every foster teen feels remembered and special this Christmas season. On November 14, 2020 we will launch our gift card collection in hopes of providing every teenager in foster care with at least one $25 gift card to each of the 200 foster teens within Summit County! Here’s how you can help:
Step One: Purchase a $25 Amazon gift card or a $25 gift card to any fast food restaurant. (Examples: Amazon, McDonalds, Chick-fil-A, Burger King, KFC, Dunkin Donuts, etc.) (Please only include physical gift cards. We can not accept digital ones.)
Step Two: Stop by the Foster Teens Christmas Card display in the foyer near the cafe between 11/14 and 11/28 to take home a Christmas Card to personalize. Please do not include any personal information in the card or seal it.
Step Three: Bring your gift card and Christmas Card with you to service on November 28, 2021. We will take a special offering to collect these gift cards.
