Bonneville Sacramento, home of MIX 96, NOW 100.5, New Country 105.1 KNCI, and Sports 1140 KHTK has partnered year-round with the Ticket to Dream Foundation to ensure local foster youth of all ages have the essentials, experiences and support services that all kids need to thrive.

Over 400,000 children are in the U.S. foster care system at any given time and range in age from days old to teens.

Many enter care with little to no belongings and have suffered the effects of abuse, poverty, neglect or even the death of their loved ones. With a nationwide shortage of foster parents and stipends that don't cover the essentials of a growing child, many children have never owned a new pair of shoes. They might not have the school supplies they need to succeed, the comfort of a special toy or clothes that build self esteem. Bonneville and Ticket to Dream are determined to ensure foster kids have the essentials they need from the moment they enter foster care, so they can focus on healing and just enjoy childhood no matter their age.

How Your Donations Help Local Foster Kids:

Your donation will be used to help foster kids off all ages receive new everyday essential items like clothes, shoes, jackets, infant care, school supply needs, and personal care items. These donations allow us to fill unmet needs immediately for kids entering care with very few possessions and provide opportunities for foster youth to shop for themselves, a treat many have never experienced.


About Ticket to Dream:
Ticket to Dream Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization, is dedicated to creating hope and opportunity for foster children across the nation, so they can just be kids. To us, hope starts with having shoes and clothing that fit, lifting their self-esteem. School supplies and access to computers so they have the tools they need to succeed in school. Getting to experience the joy of a gift under the tree, a trip to the zoo or joining a sports team. It's ensuring they have vital services and support that allow them to heal and grow to reach their full potential even as they age out of care. We want foster kids across the country to thrive, but we can't do it alone – we need your help.
