YORKVILLE- State Representative Jed Davis (R-Yorkville) is hosting a foster care information session and supply drive at his district office with co-hosts State Senator Sue Rezin (R-Morris), CASA Kendall County, and Called to Care.
“We always need more foster parents to help meet the needs of children awaiting placements in DCFS,” said Rep. Davis. “Many interested families may not know where to start when it comes to becoming foster parents, and these information sessions will give them all of the details and tools they need to get started.”
Two foster care information sessions will be held at State Representative Jed Davis’ office located at 1925 Bridge Street, Yorkville, on Thursday, November 16th at 1:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. The information sessions give a chance for interested prospective foster parents to learn more about the process of becoming a foster family by hearing from current foster parents and local non-profit organizations.
“Within our state and community, there are unfortunately countless children in our foster care system that are in need of love, support, and essential supplies,” said Sen. Rezin. “That is why I am proud to be partnering with CASA Kendall County, Called to Care, and Rep. Davis to provide information, support, and desperately needed supplies for our state’s foster care system. Every child deserves a loving and safe home. By coming together as a community, we can help ensure that reality and make a difference in the lives of those who need it most.”
The foster care supplies drive will run from November 13th to 16th. Requested items include diapers, winter hats, winter gloves, and winter coats. Items can be dropped off at either State Representative Jed Davis’ office, located at 1925 Bridge Street, Yorkville, or State Senator Sue Rezin’s office located at 1802 N. Division Street, Suite 314, Morris.
“With winter right around the corner, many foster families will take in children needing winter gear,” said Rep. Davis. “As parents know, paying for winter wardrobes adds up fast, so let’s help these local families by providing the much-needed gear.”
