There are roughly 900 children in foster care all over Macomb County, and each year it’s a struggle to provide adequate clothing to such a large number of youths. Many foster children go all year with a one season coat that doesn’t adequately protect them from the elements. Rain jackets and water resistant backpacks that are made to keep a rider warm in in frigid riding conditions and protect th
eir belongings will be a big improvement for these kids with a Michigan winter sailing in.

FOFK is a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization that was formed as a coalition to assist children from birth to age 20 within the greater Detroit area. “It is great to be able to donate some garments to make these kids’ lives better. FOFK looks like will be pretty good at getting our products to the kids who need them most” said Ryan Smith the operations manager at STG. The brands of the jackets and backpacks range from Alpinestars to AGV Sport which are both top apparel brands within the United States. This means that the children most in need this winter and spring will have jackets that fit well and are also in style, bringing even more value to the young people growing up within this community.
