The social workers who care for abused and neglected children have difficult jobs. They see, hear, and navigate very dark situations every day. The turnover rate for child welfare professionals is very high, and we know that frequent changes in caseworkers results in poorer outcomes for children. We want to show them the love of Jesus through our appreciation so that they can continue to do the work they are doing.

One of the ways we can show appreciation is through creating Car Care Gifts for social workers.

Step 1:  You will need to purchase one of each item for every bag. Items should be new; please do not use items with business logos. You may create as many car care gifts as you like, but for reference, most DCS offices have about 150 people, and private agencies generally have 10-20 people.

● Car Wash Gift Card (no more than $20 each)

● Gas Gift Card (no more than $20 each)

● Air Fresheners

● Small pack of interior wipes

● Bag or box big enough to hold each item (gender neutral)

● Blank card or thank you card

● Ribbon to close the bag or box (if needed)

Step 2: Put together your car care gifts. Write a handwritten note thanking the social worker for what they do.

Step 3: Pray for the social workers who receive your gifts.

Step 4: Completed gifts can be dropped off at the Northwest Campus (6590 S Indianapolis Rd) to the attention of Emily Day (
