Kids Closet

Kids Closet Needs List

COBYS has one big closet for all our kids. Each foster child coming into care receives a backpack filled with clothes, toys, personal care items, a Bible and more. The Closet allows caseworkers to “shop” for each child and their unique needs. Gifts for special occasions, supplies for caseworkers’ activities with kids and car seats for visitations all have a spot in the Closet. (No used items, please).

COBYS is grateful to churches and church groups who organize a drive to help “stock the closet” with supplies for our foster care and adoption children.

The complete, current list of items is available on our Amazon Wish List located here:

If you are planning to make a donation or hold a supply drive, please contact Anne Stokes at prior to holding the supply drive or bringing the donation to our Murry Hill Center office. This allows us to confirm need of specific items and availability of staff to receive the donation.

Thank you for your interest in supporting the kids we serve.

When adoption becomes an option, we are more than willing to step in and become a forever family for the child. When God calls us to steward another one of his precious children, we gladly step in to help show him/her a life devoted to Jesus Christ. – COBYS Resource Parents Joel and Jaclyn
