The Boxes of Love Project is a grassroots effort to provide babies and children going into foster care with a large box of new clothing, pajamas, shoes and other comfort items to call their own…A Box of Love. The project was started by a local pediatric nurse in response to seeing the shocking number of babies and children who enter the foster care system with literally nothing other than the clothes on their backs. After adopting her own son in May 2014 (after she and her husband fostered him for two years), Lyndsee Wunn knew that she had to do something to change the way that so many children enter the foster care system.
In the Spring of 2014, Lyndsee launched The Boxes of Love Project and was met with an incredible outpouring of support from the community! Money and clothing donations began pouring in, and in a few short weeks, the first box was assembled and delivered.
It is the mission of The Boxes of Love Project to let these amazing babies and children know that they are special, that they are valued, that they matter, and most importantly, that they are loved. The boxes help to provide the children with a small sense of comfort, control, security and happiness during an incredibly scary and tumultuous time in their lives. Please join us in our effort to provide some of the most vulnerable children in our community with a little bit of love, hope and joy!

100 Women Who Care SW Washington is a group of ladies who care about our community and want to make a HUGE impact. We meet once quarterly and hear about the great work of three LOCAL charities, and then choose the one who needs our help the most.
