For the holidays this year, AASK is conducting a “Snowflake Drive” to benefit children in foster care.
There are currently 1,200 children placed with AASK foster families.
Each year during the holidays, AASK uses gift cards to help support the relationship between each child and their foster family.
AASK collects $10 and $25 gift cards plus snowflake ornaments for each foster child, so that the family can ask the child about their holiday wishes and then use the gift card(s) to make these wishes come true. This builds communication, trust, and caring for children recovering from the effects of abuse and neglect.
Just as every snowflake is unique, every child is unique. Foster families are encouraged to understand the hopes, dreams and desires of every child in their care.
Snowflakes and gift cards can be dropped off through December 1 at the AASK main office (2320 N. 20th Street), or arrangements can be made for pickup.
