Help Local Foster Kids
Why Foster Kids?
Over 60,000 California children find themselves living in foster care at any given time, many of which have entered with little to no possessions. While foster parents are paid a monthly stipend to help support the costs of raising a child, that stipend would need to increase by an average of 46% to meet all of the needs of a growing child.
Sleep Train’s collection drives help foster organization and parents immediately provide essential items that all children need. When foster children receive these new clothes, shoes, pajamas and school supplies, it creates a positive experience in what can be a challenging or scary time.
It's now easier than ever to help a local foster child! Simply donate money online and it will go directly to purchasing goods for Foster Kids OR you can always drop off your donation to any Sleep Train store.

For over 60,000 California foster children growing up is an important milestone, but it also means having to replace clothes that are too small or worn out.

Just bring your donation of new pants, shirts, tops and skirts to any Sleep Train or donate online and we’ll do the shopping for you.
