2023 Holiday Gift Drive

Support local youth impacted by foster care or trauma this holiday season by sponsoring a child through the annual Fostering Connections Holiday Drive! Being placed in foster care is a difficult season of life for all youth in care. Your support provides a bright light this holiday season for our youth in care.

There is a high need this year for holiday gifts for teens. You can help teens in care have a joyful holiday season. Thank you for your generosity!

All gifts should arrive unwrapped, per the policy of our local foster care agencies.  Donors are welcome to include gift wrap with your gift if you wish to do so. Gift drop off date is Friday, December 8 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at either of these Tropical Smoothie locations: 2375 FL-16, St. Augustine, FL 32084 (SR 16 & I-95) or 2245 County Road 210 W, Suite 114, St. Johns, FL 32259 

How you can help:

✔️ Sponsor a teen through our virtual giving tree! You and your family can go shopping together, buy gifts from their wish lists, and deliver them to Fostering Connections. You can find our Virtual Giving Tree here or at the button below. 

✔️ Don't have time to go shopping this year? You can donate to our upcoming Teen Talk event on December 9 at St. Johns Town Center. Your donation will provide a $150 gift card for a teen in attendance to select holiday gifts. You can donate to support our Holiday Teen Talk event here.

✔️ Give through the gift of your time. Volunteers are needed for our upcoming Holiday Teen Talk event. You can sign up to volunteer here.


Thank you for supporting our teens in care this holiday season!
