We are kicking off this holiday season with Holiday Heroes Badass Chicks. Each week leading up to our holiday break, I'll be highlighting a local woman who is an unsung hero in her community, especially this holiday season. 

 

This week's Badass Chick is Sharon Collins, creator of the South Shore Foster Closet. 

 

Sharon and her two siblings were adopted, so she understands full-well that so many amazing kids are in need of loving homes. She had always wanted to foster children herself but it wasn't until her divorce five years ago that she was able to make it happen. In the past three and a half years, her home welcomed 39 children. Currently, she is fostering four boys and also has two teens of her own. 

 

A couple of years ago, Sharon got together with a few women on the Friends of Foster Care Board of Directors and together they created the South Shore Foster Closet. They accept donations of gently used clothes and other essential items to help foster families on the South Shore gather what they need for their children. This holiday season, they are taking it one step further and have organized a year-long toy drive. This Saturday, any local foster parents who want to help Santa pick out gifts for their foster kids can stop by the closet on Saturday to pick out some goodies for free.
