One of the ways we provide income for our services and programs is through grants from our community. We are trying to grow this area and know that several companies offer grants only through recommendation of their employees. There are probably others besides Vons, Pavilions, Safeway, Bowing, and Disney, so if you could check out and see if work places of those you know might offer something, it sure would be helpful. Please let me know if you or someone you know works at one of these locations and could provide a reference for Foster Care Auxiliary of Orange County. I know there are lots of companies that offer matching donations....just a thought- and any amount would be super helpful!
Thanks for taking the time needed to check out how you can help.

Toys, Housewares, Clothing, Sporting Goods, Collectables, etc...anything that is in good condition would be great. Please consider cleaning out your closets and helping us out. We accept donations any day except Sunday and Wednesday between the hours of 10am and 3pm. Tax Receipts are available at the cashier when you drop off. Thanks so much for considering and please share this to your friends and family who might consider helping too. ... See MoreSee Less
