Help Improve a Child's Well-being

Normal Request
The department recently gained Permanent Managing Conservatorship of a child. She is 15 and usually a happy child, but the reality of being in care is being to weigh on this child. She is having a horrible time understanding why she is not able to go home to her family. To help boost her confidence, her placement and I are working together to take her on outings and most of all, keep our word when we tell her we are going to take her somewhere, we are following through. I am able to take her out to eat or shopping occasionally, but the placement is staffed facility without an outing budget. A staff member would like to take her on weekly outings as reward for good behavior and to show her that she has people in her corner. Any denomination gift cards to places like Raising Canes, Wal-Mart, McDonald's, and other places teenagers eat and shop would be greatly appreciated so she get out of the facility and have a normal teenage life.
