To commemorate National Foster Care Month this May, the Institute’s Enrollment Office, in collaboration with Peacock Acres, is hosting a backpack and personal hygiene drive.  Bring a new or slightly used backpack or any of the basic necessity items listed below to CF 443 between May 1 and May 31 and help provide these youth a sense of dignity and security while in foster care.  Each backpack will also contain a personal note of encouragement and support from Monterey Institute staff members.

Ideas of items to contribute:
· A new or slightly used backpack or duffle bag

· Deodorant

· Hairbrushes

· Personal hygiene items

· A small stuffed animal

· Toiletry bags

· Toothbrushes and Toothpaste

· What you might have wanted when you were a teen!
