Stash for potential foster care child

A friend of mine is going to be a foster parent soon and she is very very crunchy. I know she definitely wants to cloth diaper. She asked me to make up a list of Diapers to have on hand for newborns to 5 yr olds.

For diapers I was going to recommend
4 dozen flats
2 snappis
2 boingo sets
a set of pins
4 recycled wool covers in each size.
4 Pul covers in each size aplix for new born and small snaps for medium large and extra-large
Large bucket for a diaper pail. I personal hate using a pail liner but I will let her know how they and let her decide if she wants one.
travel wetbag
Wipes
recipe for wipes solution
some cj's or coconut oil
12 onesize diapers
6 Xl-pockets just in case she gets a non potty trained older child.

I was going to tell her to get sized prefolds but that would a huge investment to even get only 2 dozen in each size.
What would you add or subtract to this list?

I think it would be cheaper to invest in one size covers than to buy sized pul covers. You can get by with buying less covers. with the exception of newborn covers.

And, to make it even cheaper... She could use flour sack towels as flats (or recieving blankets) and baby wash rags as wipes
