About the Wishing Well Foundation

The Wishing Well provides new and gently-used clothing and school supplies to children 0-18 years of age who are currently placed in the foster care system in Pierce County. We are the only foster support agency of its kind working in Pierce County.

We are a nonprofit support agency focused on the well-being of abused and neglected youth within the foster care system. Our mission is to provide the clothing, supplies, and experiences unavailable to most foster kids and to retain quality foster homes in Pierce County by addressing financial barriers to accepting foster placements.

Our Partners

We have been pretty stressed trying to figure out how to get the shop open as quickly as possible….fingers crossed that the new doors will be in next week.

In the meantime, our community of donors has come through big time ordering so many of the items that were taken during the break in. We are forever grateful for the support that you continue to show the foster families and children we serve ❤️

WE ARE TEMPORARILY CLOSED

Ugh! We have had break in at the Wishing Well and we will be closed until further notice. Despite having a camera, (the motion light was stolen last week) and a metal roll down door, the criminals used a crowbar and completely disassembled the door handle. The doors are now boarded up and we are formulating a plan to ensure this doesn’t happen again.

The items that were stolen were mainly the men’s/women’s socks, underwear, shoes, and all of our Bath and Body works/hygiene items. I am thankful it wasn’t worse, but it is still extremely frustrating and exhausting trying to keep our location secure.

We will post an update once things are up and running and we are open again.

*I will be creating an Amazon Wish List and posting soon to help replace the stolen items.
