Even if you can’t become a foster or adoptive parent, you can still help! Below are some ways to help MCFAPA, both monetarily and tangibly. We even listed some ideas that “Friends of MCFAPA” have done for us already. Why reinvent the wheel? 🙂
- Donate! You can choose to help sponsor one of our KICK Bags or baby blankets below!
