Hi (Name)!

Do you know what The Ruth Project is? It’s a place where my family and I get to visit, have fun together, and get to know other foster families. We can’t wait to see what they have planned next for us and always love to visit.

On April 13, The Ruth Project is having a Foster FUNdraiser Walk at The Farm, and I am walking one mile around their Activity Path! Will you sponsor me? My goal is $100 total. All donations go toward the activities at The Ruth Project. It’s a great cause and I am so happy to be walking!

Here’s a link to my fundraising page if you decide to donate (Copy and paste fundraising link here). Thank you so much for thinking about it! I will let you know how it goes! Here’s also a link (www.ruthproject.com) to learn more about The Ruth Project.

Some details:
- All items in meal must be frozen. We love sides and dessert options as well.
- Kid-friendly and comfort meals are encouraged.
- Please avoid allergies (ie: peanuts, shellfish).
- If you have gluten/dairy free recipes, we also accept those!
- Please attach a separate sheet with details instructions for cooking and recipe (including ingredients)

Animal Care

Calling all animal lovers!

Love and snuggles from our variety of farm creatures is important to our children. This Animal Care Team will help feed, care for, and train our farm animals.

This includes our donkey, highland cow, chickens, ducks, and pup! Routine care will be assisting in feeding, grooming, and spending time with the animals to ensure friendliness. Training will be provided, no experience necessary.

Thank you so much!

Greenhouse Care

Do you have a green-thumb?
We’d love your help in keeping the Greenhouse alive!

By assisting us with watering, weeding, planting, and nurturing the flower and salad beds, you will be apart of creating a calm and peaceful place for our foster moms to enjoy!

Don’t worry, we will make sure to provide you with all the instructions you need when you arrive.

Greenhouse Care only needs completed once a day - so you are welcome to come anytime between 9am-6pm (the earlier the better)!
