Sorting Clothes for Foster Children at Robyn's Nest
Robyn's Nest is a program of Children's Hospital (CHW) that supplies new and gently used clothing, hygiene products, infant items, toys, books and other household goods free to the families within the foster care system as well as those identified to have unmet needs through CHW.
On Thursday, October 12 from 5:00 - 6:00 pm SBK families will be lending a little hand at Robyn's Nest to sort donations for foster families.
What to expect:
There are two ways to get involved in this project:
1) Option 1: We have room for several families to join us at Robyn's Nest to lend a hand by sorting items so kids & foster families can easily shop (at no cost!) for the supplies they need. Feel free to bring gently used items to donate! (Members can select this option)
2) Option 2: Drop off gently used clothing or shoes by October 11th at our project planner's home in Pewaukee. Address will be provided prior to for those that register for this option. (Everyone can select this option).
Please note that all donated items must be currently in season (fall/winter) as Robyn's Nest does not have space to store out of season items. Most needed items currently include winter coats for little children; boys' clothing 3T, 4T, and 5/6; and teen boy hoodies and joggers. All fall/winter clothing items would be welcomed though!
Capacity & Age Recommendations:
All ages are welcome at this project, but please note there are no restrooms readily available on site. We expect to have room for approximately 5 families at the on site project. Initial registration will be for members only, but we are happy to open registration to guests if we have additional space.
What to bring:
Feel free to bring along donations if you wish (see HERE for an acceptable item listing), however no donations are expected/required to attend. Please note that all items must be appropriate for the current season- see listing above for most needed items right now.
What to wear:
Kids can wear their Sunbeam Kids shirts/lanyards if they want.
A volunteer application is required to be completed for each individual attending. We will e-mail a copy to all registrants a few days prior to this project. Please bring the completed application with you to the project.
REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED.
This project is open to members* only, but we will be happy to open it up to guests if space allows. Please only sign up if you know you can attend. We understand illness and emergencies do come up so if you register and can no longer attend, please let us know ASAP so we can fill your spot.
A big thanks to Advisory Council member Adam for leading this project, and thank you for lending a little hand!

*While we rely on member donations to keep the good work going, we never want the $40/family/year to be a hurdle to volunteering with us. If you are in need of assistance, we do have a limited number of scholarships available that are 100% confidential, just email and ask!
