We will be collecting towel sets (one bath towel, one hand towel and one wash cloth), new toiletry items and new or gently used luggage and/or duffel bags for local foster youth at this event.

Women in Philanthropy members and supporters participate in the Foster Youth Emancipation Basket program through Sacramento County. Items are collected for the more than 300 foster youth emancipating from the system so they have necessary household items to get started on their own. Our towel sets and toiletry items are included in these baskets. Last year, we collected more then 350 towel sets and more than a hundred toiletry items. This year, we will also be collecting new or gently used luggage and/or duffel bags for foster youth so they have something to transport their belongings.

If you cannot attend the event, please make arrangements to drop-off items to our office before May 12.
