Mark's Heart

Support Local Foster Kids through the Mark's Heart Fund

Rebekah Children’s Services Foster Care and Adoption is teaming up with Mark’s Heart to support the needs of local foster youth who come into the foster care system. For a child entering foster care, fear of the unknown can be overwhelming. Mark's Heart hopes to ease some of that fear by making sure basic needs are met.

100% of your donation to the Mark's Heart Fund will be used to provide a child with items they need to be successful.

Examples include:

  • basic hygiene items (toothbrush, hair brush, towel, soap, etc)
  • clothing needs (underwear, clothing, shoes, etc)
  • bedding (pillow, blanket, sheets, mattress, etc.)
  • infant needs (formula, diapers, bottles, car seat, etc)

All items provided for a child new to the foster care system must be new and will be used only by that child.

Mark's Heart Namesake

Mark Keith was a beloved son, brother, father, uncle and friend who left us far too soon. Though he struggled with depression, he found purpose and joy through the children that he loved. Quick with a joke, mischievous smile, or kind word, Mark loved and was loved by all who knew him. When he passed in 2014 the seed for Mark's Heart was planted. We envision Mark's Heart as a legacy of love for this man we hold so dear. A man who would do anything for anyone…especially a child. A fund has been created through Rebekah Children's Services to honor the memory of his giving heart and will serve to provide children in foster care with resources they need beyond the scope of their daily care.
