Foster Children at Everyday Blessings Receive Items from WMU-Cooley Law School Students, Faculty and Staff
Donated items collected by WMU-Cooley Law School’s students, faculty, and staff were delivered to Everyday Blessings, a nonprofit foster care organization located in Thonotosassa, Florida. Items collected included games, toys, gift cards, personal hygiene products and more.
Those living at Everyday Blessings range in age from newborn through 17 years old, and come from all economic backgrounds and ethnic groups. The foster care organization houses children who have been removed from their previous homes due to abuse, neglect, or abandonment.
“WMU-Cooley’s students, faculty and staff have a special place in their hearts for the children at Everyday Blessings,” said Lisa Erkens, who coordinated the donation drive at the law school. “We want every child to have an opportunity to feel special during the holiday season.”
