Donate To Our Hygiene Drive Through May 31!

Updated: May 9, 2023

This year, the Fostering Christmas team is marking National Teen Self-Esteem Month in May with a Hygiene Drive! Throughout the month of May, we’re collecting soap, deodorant, period products, and other toiletries to help Ada and Canyon County foster teens feel clean and confident. These products only cost a few dollars, but their impact on a child's confidence and self-esteem can be life-changing.

To join the drive, drop off items from the list below in our collection bin at 391 N. Ancestor Place, Suite 100, in Boise, or mail a check to Fostering Christmas at that address. All donations must be brand-new and unopened.
