Tampa Bay Foster Family Support Saturday – May 25, 2019

Recently Man Up and Go partnered with UPS to help out families in the Tampa, FL, area who are either foster or adoptive parents. One of the biggest things we can do to help these families is provide them with what’s called “wrap-around” services. It’s just like it sounds. There are those who are not called to adopt/foster necessarily, but still see the James 1:27 command in Scripture to still “visit” orphans in their distress.

One way they can do that is by visiting the families who are taking care of foster children or adoptive children and “wrapping” around them to provide support and services. Sometimes it’s a hug or a meal, but other times it’s laundry or respite care or projects around the house.

UPS provided Man Up and Go with a grant to help service some families in the Tampa Bay area recently. Among the accomplishments:

  • Shrub and bush trimming
  • Tree trimming and landscaping
  • Concrete work
  • Plumbing
  • Drywalling
  • Fence repair
