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 A LOT of bags/boxes of donated clothing to sort through. Due to Covid we are limiting the amount of volunteers in the shop so is anyone interested in coming by to pick up bags to sort and organize at home? If so, please send me a PM. Thank you in advance 😉 ... See MoreSee Less
