Together We Rise is a national non-profit organization dedicated to transforming the way youth navigate through the foster care system. They work with thousands of volunteers, social workers, CASA advocates, and other partners to transform the way kids experience foster care. Their programs are created to provide a way for people who cannot become foster parents to still have a meaningful and effective way to help children in foster care. Krystal Estrada from Together We Rise said that "donations made will help provide emergency support services to students who are in (and formally in) foster care who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Your donation will allow us to continue providing housing, groceries, technology, and so much more."
This fundraiser hopes to raise $2500 that will go towards two different programs Together We Rise offers – the duffle bag program and the birthday boxes program. Duffle bags assure that one less child will travel throughout foster care with a trash bag. The Birthday Box program provides children with goodies they can use to celebrate their special day with a birthday in a box! It costs just $25 to support a duffle bag or birthday box and the hope is to purchase 100 boxes/duffle bags.
