Holiday Gift Registration is OPEN for Kitsap foster families!

It’s the most wonderful time….of the year….Time to register for holiday gifts! We will provide gifts to all kids in the house, regardless of legal status, as long as you are a licensed foster home with a current placement in Kitsap or you have Kitsap kids placed with you. This event is also open for kinship and suitable other placements. Kids 10 and up may receive a gift card OR a gift based on your suggestions.

Please mark your calendar to ensure pick up on Dec 10th between 1pm and 2:30pm at Bethany Lutheran Church in Port Orchard. We can’t guarantee gifts will be available after Dec 10th. Thank you for respecting the time and effort that our volunteers put in to make this program successful.

If you registered for gifts last year and did not pick up, you are not eligible to register this year.

GHOST TRAIN IS BAAAAACK!

We are beyond thrilled to announce that GHOST TRAIN IS BACK! (…and better than ever, but only with your help!)

Kitsap Foster Care Association is seeking local Kitsap community businesses and organizations to sponsor a Trick-or-Treating booth at our largest annual fundraiser on October 29, 2022. We are also seeking community groups and organizations who would like to volunteer to set up a spooky scene in the forest to entertain all of the Ghost Train Riders.

The most recent Ghost Train (in 2019) sold out over 1600 tickets to ride the train and welcomed over 2000 people through the park to the trick or treating booths. This is a fantastic opportunity to create visibility for your business or organization while also showing your support of Kitsap foster kids.

If you’re interested in participating in either or both of those capacities, please fill out this short form at your earliest convenience.
