Interfaith Youth Project for James Storehouse

When children are reunited with a parent or when a youth ages out of foster care and is setting up their first apartment, they often start with little to no belongings. To ease their transition, James Storehouse provides Kitchen and Bed/Bath Starter Kits. These items can easily be purchased at a Dollar Store and are a huge encouragement to the recipient!

Birthday Buddies was started in 2018 by a local middle school student in order to support James Storehouse’s desires to celebrate each foster child they serve.

During the month of February and March, all faiths and community members are invited to collect birthday party supplies and starter kit supplies for children in the foster care system and for those who are aging out.

Bring collected donations to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1600 Erbes, Thousand Oaks on March 18th at 6:30pm. We will sort and package the starter kits, and birthday supplies as well as make tie blankets and birthday banners to be used at future birthday events organized through James Storehouse.

All youth are invited and encourage to attend on March 18th.

If you are unable to attend the event on March 18, Temple Adat Elohim is collecting the items needed for the baskets. Bring them to the box in the temple office by March 16. and we will transport.
