A Free Resource Available to Foster Families in Boston



For foster parents, it is hard to know what you will need when a new child is placed in your home. The Foster Box is here to help provide clothes and children’s items that are age-appropriate upon your new child’s arrival. We will take care of the the details so you can spend time loving and welcoming a new face into your home.


How It Works


When you find out a new little one is on their way, log on to our website and fill your cart with things that you will need.


Once we receive your request, we will send a quick note to your social worker for approval. After we have the OK, your box will be carefully packed with new and gently-used donated items based on your request. Items are always subject to the donations we have in stock.


A runner specific to your location will schedule a time to drop off the items at your house or arrange a place to meet for pick up.
