Knitters are wonderful, giving people! The [tag]Orphan Foundation of America[/tag] put out the call for help to create Valentine’s Day care packages for the [tag]orphans[/tag] they foster.

The results were an overwhelming success.

OFA students rarely receive mail and a Care Package sends much needed support and encouragement. Juggling independent living now that foster care has ended, working multiple jobs, and achieving academic success is challenging for these young people without parental support. Receiving a Care Package is especially meaningful and can ease the loneliness and anxiety OFA students often experience. The Care Package Program is part of OFA’s web of family-like support that helps to ensure graduation and the bright futures of these courageous students.

OFA partners with America’s corporations, volunteer and community groups to prepare and send thousands of Care Packages three times per academic year – September, February (Valentine’s) and late April.

Since this is an ongoing project, you can get involved at any time. Visit this page for more information.
