For the last 3 years, the FCS club has sponsored the Foster the Love program at Knoch. This is a program that collects backpacks full of certain items for children that are in the foster care program.
Each year, more than 15,000 kids are served through the foster care system in Pennsylvania alone. Many of these kids are taken to a foster home with no belongings or a few items thrown into a trash bag. The Foster Love Project provides placement bags to be given to kids at the time of transition. We believe in giving them a good quality bag with new belongings to support that neither they nor their belongings are disposable.
We are once again sponsoring the program from November 14- December 5th. We filled 26 bags last year! Our goal is to do better than last year. We are asking 1st-period classes to join us to fill backpacks. The class that fills the largest number of backpacks (everything from the list in the backpack) will get a breakfast treat. Just a reminder, everything is to be new. Please let FCS know if you would like to participate in this activity.
Anyone in the community who would like to contribute can do so by dropping donations off at Knoch High School during regular business hours.
