Every May is Foster Care Awareness Month
Go Purple for Berkshire
May is National Foster Care Awareness Month
It is a time when we bring awareness to the critical need for foster families across New York State.
Individuals, groups and businesses can show support and help bring awareness by pledging to
Go Purple for Berkshire throughout the month of May!
Be creative - have a purple dress down day, wear purple hats, bake purple cupcakes, or find any other creative way to Go Purple and help us build awareness of this important need.
There are over 17,000 kids in foster care across NYS
DID YOU KNOW?
Every day, 69 kids come into care
In 2022, we served 8,053 children and their families across New York State
When you make a commitment to Go Purple for Berkshire, we encourage you to print our flyer and display it all month long or on a day you choose, to help others understand why you are wearing purple.
Be creative and let your purple help shine a light on the need for foster parents across NYS! Together, we can bring awareness and hopefully encourage others to learn more about becoming a foster parent.
Please take a moment to fill out our official "I'm Going Purple for Berkshire" Pledge form:
Don't forget to take pictures and tag us on Facebook & Instagram @berkshirefarmcenter and use the hashtag #gopurpleforberkshire #fostercareawarenessmonth.
THANK YOU FOR GOING PURPLE FOR BERKSHIRE!
