Foster mom seeks donations to help teens in foster care buy school clothes

By A.J. DUGGER III

A local foster parent is partnering with S.A.F.E., a Franklin company that supports foster families, to have a gift card drive for Williamson County teenagers in foster care.
The drive is called “Teens Dress for Success.”

“We want our teens to buy their own clothes and get to shop and live like normal teens,” said Julie Sutton, a foster mother partnering with S.A.F.E for the project. “What we’re trying to do is get VISA and MasterCard gift cards. We’re trying to get at least $100 in gift cards for each teen. The deadline is July 25 because we’d like to get them to the kids so they can shop before school starts.”

Sutton says that teenagers are generally left out, so the card drive was a special way to honor them.'
