Handmade items benefit kids in foster care

This week’s bouquets go to:

From the Delta County office of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services:

Hats, pajamas. mittens, blankets, pillowcases and cinch bags!

The Delta County office of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) would like to thank the following individuals for their donation of handmade items that will directly benefit area children who come into foster care: Marie Chenier, Linda Depuydt, Ann King, Kim Knauf-Wyckoff, Ada Knauf, and Ilene Solis. These women also volunteer and give of their talents in other areas of our community, including work through Holy Name Schools, St. Vincent DePaul, First Lutheran Church/Lutheran World Relief, and the U.P. Honor Flight. Delta County MDHHS strives to provide excellent care for children in foster care and donations such as these play an important role. Thanks again to these individuals.

If you would like information on becoming a foster parent or a respite care provider for foster children, please contact 855-MICHKIDS (855-642-4543) toll free.
