Nonprofit in Sarasota allows children in foster care to shop for free

Did you know there is an amazing non-profit, right here in Sarasota County, that allows children in foster care to shop for free? It is a fun, friendly boutique, solely for foster families.

The Twig is open every Saturday of each month from 9am to 1pm, for children in foster care to come and shop for free. Children in foster care are eligible to shop once every calendar month they are in care with a supervising agency. The store is stocked with new and like new merchandise that is selected to reflect the latest trends for children newborn through teens.

Every month, each child is welcome to select seven items, along with undergarments, socks, and accessories.

How is this possible? Through the generosity of individuals and businesses in our community. 

Please note, they are unable to accept donations during our shopping days as this is a special time just for the children in foster care.

​Our designated donation drop off day is the 4th Monday of every month from 4-6pm. Thank you for your understanding.
