Through the Charity In Bloom program, Tillie's will contribute 20% of the purchase price from the Charity In Bloom bouquet collection sold during the month of December 2017 to the Wichita Children's Home.
WCH has been serving children since 1888, and every supporter is part of that 129-year legacy. The WCH is always open to children who have been abused, neglected, abandoned, exploited, trafficked or left homeless. About 1,200 a year arrive with just the clothes they are wearing, taken into police protective custody because their current situations are unsafe. Others are “aging out” of foster care and lack the resources and skills to live on their own.
Some are pregnant and parenting and need help caring for their young child, staying in school, finding employment and breaking the destructive cycles in their lives. With help from community partners and caring individuals, every year the WCH provides more than 1,500 children and youth in crisis with a safe place to sleep, clean clothes and shoes that fit, therapeutic care, academic support, life and job skills, case management, advocacy and more.
