Clough UMC offers basics for foster kids

"A social worker hands a young child a paper bag with instructions to get some of her stuff.

The girl packs things of importance to her - toys. She's then whisked away to a foster family.

When she arrives at her foster home, she has nothing more than the clothes on her back and the sack of toys, Sue Jacob said. The story is one shared with Jacob by a friend who recently took in a foster child. It's also a story that's repeated daily throughout the area, she said.

Jack's Closet, a mission of Clough United Methodist Church in Anderson Township, exists to help fill the needs of children in foster or kinship care."
