NYAP – West Virginia

Children’s Relief Crusade Backpacks

Former NYAP West Virginia foster parents Paige and Andrew Burkett started the Children’s Relief Crusade out of the Bethesda Baptist Church in Barrickville, West Virginia. Every month they donate diapers, wipes, baby formula and baby furniture to our NYAP Fairmont agency.  This past back to school season they provided a backpack filled with school supplies, tissues, Clorox wipes and baggies to each of our school aged clients.  They also have started intake bags for each NYAP West Virginia office. These are given out to new clients entering foster care.   These bags are filled with a blanket, foldable clothes hamper, toiletries, and pen/paper.
