Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

(WSIL) -- News 3 WSIL has partnered with the Southern Illinois Community Foundation to spotlight local non-profit organizations in our Giving Tuesday series.

This week's featured charitable organization is the Foster Family Resource Center. The Foster Family Resource Center serves foster parents in 22 Southern Illinois counties by providing them with items and supplies to meet their immediate needs, completely free of charge.

At the time of a new foster placement, the center provides things like clothing, shoes, beds, cribs, bedding, personal care items, mattresses, diapers, formula, car safety seats and more. The 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization is funded by gifts, donations, grants, fundraisers, and through proceeds from the Two Bugs and a Bean Children's Resale Boutique in Carbondale.
