PSPA Host City Charity
The PSPA contact for the Host City Charity is Rebecca Baldwin, PA-C, at Rebecca.firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Kindness Project is an all-volunteer, donation-based, nonprofit-organization created to provide support to foster families in the Lehigh Valley and surrounding areas. We supply clothing, shoes, furniture and other essential items free of charge as children in the foster care system are placed in new homes. The physical shop, “The Kindness Exchange” is located in Emmaus, PA.
Our ultimate goal is to enable the foster family to provide for the most basic of needs of the child QUICKLY and help ease the transition of the children) into their new foster home family. The more we can alleviate the financial stresses for our resource families, the more love and emotional support can be provided to the children in their care. We are thankful to all of our donors who allow us to serve these amazing families and children!
