ASU Holiday Drive for Valley Foster Children
November 18 - December 9, 2019

Staff Council is partnering with the Commission on the Status of Women and the Committee for Campus Inclusion on a holiday gift drive for valley foster children.  There are currently 16,000 children in foster care in Maricopa County and the holidays can be a particularly difficult time for these children.  To help make the holidays brighter, the Arizona Department of Child Safety is collecting gifts for foster children in need.  The goal is to provide at least one gift to each child in foster care.  Help us to help these children by donating a gift this holiday season.  Even a small donation of a toy car or a pair of socks can make all the difference – and your donation will go directly to a child in foster care.
