Wish lists by cottageSince the pandemic, our kids have not been able to accept visitors on campus. When the school year started, they began distance learning. In addition, they haven’t been able to go into the neighborhood and visit theaters, parks, museums and other venues.

What does this mean? 

We know what it’s like to be cooped up at home. However, we have each other, enjoying quality family time. For our Five Acres kids, they’re not with their biological families.¬†However, they are with their 5A family. We can, with your support, continue to be the family that brings safety and well-being.

We need your support to help with fun activities and on-campus workshops by becoming Cottage Friends. With your support we can provide the supplies, incentives, rewards and on-campus fun like yoga, picnics, music, art classes and outdoor movie screenings with snacks. Our children could also use your donations to decorate their rooms in the cottages. These items will keep our children safe and happy while sheltering in place.

Can we count on you to donate and become one of our Cottage Friends?

You can support the children by purchasing from our Cottage Friends Amazon Wish List. If you prefer us to do the shopping, simply make a cash donation here¬†and we’ll make the purchases to bring the fun activities and programs.
