BOMA Hosts 20th Annual “Give From Your Heart” Gift Drive

The San Diego Building Owners & Managers Association (BOMA) is hosting its 20th annual “Give From Your Heart” gift drive. The drive will benefit Promises2Kids, a nonprofit organization that has worked to create a brighter future for foster children for more than 32 years in San Diego County.

BOMA delivered more than 300 wrapped collection bins to more than 150 major business and office buildings throughout San Diego County. San Diego residents are encouraged to drop off new and unwrapped gifts to the bins through Dec. 12, when the bins will be collected and delivered to the sorting facility where Promises2Kids will allocate the gifts to foster children within San Diego County. A list of participating building drop off locations throughout San Diego county is available at www.bomasd.org. The Promises2Kids gift wish list and Amazon wish list are available at www.promises2kids.org.

“This is an incredible way for our organization to give back to the community and bring joy into the lives of hundreds of children during the tough holiday season,” said BOMA President Mike Hansen. “Over the years we’ve brought together dozens of volunteers eager to brighten the lives of children by decorating and distributing hundreds of collection bins and encouraging tenants in office buildings to donate toys. It’s truly amazing.”

BOMA’s goal this year is to collect 20,000 gift items and gift cards. This is a community-wide effort with corporate leaders volunteering hundreds of hours to brighten the holidays for under served children of San Diego. For more information, visit www.bomasd.org or contact the BOMA Office.

Maria – One Story of One Child

At the age of 6, Maria Brown entered the foster care system, separated from her brother, and thrust into a life of continued uncertainty and chaos. Although the foster care system strived to save Maria, she unfortunately continued to suffer, experiencing the unimaginable.

While in the foster care system, Maria moved more times than she can remember, experiencing every type of placement – the Polinksy Children’s Center, San Diego County’s emergency shelter, built by Promises2Kids, foster homes, group homes, hospitals, and juvenile hall. She learned to navigate the world on her own. Maria embodies resilience and perseverance, and that is why she is such a success today.

After having her own children, Maria completely changed her life, her outlook, and her future. She earned her GED, enrolled in a local community college, and transferred to San Diego State University. While at the community college, Maria learned about Promises2Kids Guardian Scholars. As a Guardian Scholar, Maria was matched with her mentor, Linda, who provides constant support and guidance, and was provided countless resources and services to help at every pivotal moment during her educational journey. Promises2Kids also provides Maria with a scholarship to help lighten the financial load of […]

Foster Funds

 Something Special Fund

The Something Special Fund provides support for foster children's wishes for special requests that most children take for granted. Promises2Kids ensures foster children know that they too are special and deserving — and that someone cares.

Special circumstances often arise in a foster child’s life where they need additional financial support for activities such as sports equipment, music classes, a class photo, or application fees to apply for college. Because of this lack of funding, many foster youth are unable to fully experience everything life has to offer them at this age, which is so critical to a sense of belonging.  The Something Special Fund was designed to provide foster youth with additional funds so that they don’t have to sit on the sidelines because they don’t have a prom dress or suit or because they can’t afford sheet music, art supplies or a class ring. Financial support is provided on an ‘as needed’ basis for youth ages 18 and under and upon the request of a social worker.
