Are you willing to mobilize your group for specific volunteer or fundraising projects? Becoming a partner with Bloom means you will act as a liaison to your club, class or civic group. You will introduce Bloom, invite Bloom to come share our story and cause with your organization. We can supply a passionate speaker about Bloom and the impact we are having on the lives of children. Or, we can provide you materials and stories to help you introduce Bloom.
What is most important is that we link with kindred spirits who share in our mission. We exist to give these children hope, to let them know someone cares, to lift them up, to allow them to become the best person they were meant to be. Join your group with ours.
Our programs depend on the generosity of community members – both as volunteers and financial supporters. We routinely partner with businesses, groups, and individuals who are led to give back to foster youth in our community. Currently, we have several opportunities for business owners and their employees to engage with our cause and make a difference in the life of a foster child.
Employee engagement week provides the opportunity for your employees to be directly involved in Bloom’s mission of supporting foster children in Georgia. Bloom will partner with your business to raise the awareness of foster care needs in our state and in our own community. Throughout the week, Bloom will provide multiple ways for your employees to engage with our cause.
The three main initiatives include:
• A company-wide clothing drive for The Bloom Closet
• An educational lunch & learn for prospective Foster Parents
• Scheduled sessions for employees to volunteer at The Bloom Closet
Bloom believes every foster child deserves loving, supportive and dedicated foster parents during this difficult time in their young lives. It is our hope and prayer that through partnering with local churches we can identify, train and support a network of loving and supportive foster parents.
Working together, we hope to educate congregations about the many ways to help Georgia’s 14,000 foster children. We seek to cultivate long-term relationships with church members who are willing to become Team Bloom foster families, as well as those who are able to support foster parents as part of a “Bloom Kinship Family.”
The Bloom Kinship Family simply means that each Team Bloom foster parent in your congregation will be surrounded by a support system made up of the following
