Over 20,000 Northwest children find themselves living in foster care at any given time, many of which have entered with little to no possessions. Many have suffered the effects of poverty, neglect, and even abuse. Studies show that for many foster children, these challenges are just beginning. But it doesn't have to be that way. Sleep Country has joined forces with local foster care non-profit partners and our communities in an effort to help Northwest foster kids. With your help, we can provide foster children with the little things that often make a big difference. Help a local foster child by bringing your gift of new pajamas to Sleep Country.
