Show foster kids some love on Valentine’s Day with cards

They can be handmade or store-bought and will be given to foster children in our community who have experienced abuse and neglect.

CASA-CAN director Mercedes Oxford Kemp said the cards are important because Valentine’s Day can be isolating for the kids.

“I used to be a foster parent, and then my husband was in foster care and this would’ve been something that would’ve been neat for him when he was in foster care and also for our foster kids that we had,” said Kemp. “I think that would’ve been really neat to show the kids that we had that, ‘Hey, here are some Valentine’s from people in the community. You’re loved and you’re appreciated and you’re not alone.”
