Give to Local Foster Youth
Swap Trash Bags for Sweet Cases
Over 700 children enter the foster care system each day. Most are given trash bags to carry their belongings. What can we put in the hands of foster youth TODAY that will serve an impact? We will be partnering with Together We Rise to provide 100 sweet cases (for youth age 10 below) and 100 teen duffels (for youth ages 10-18) to local foster youth this spring.
When children often enter care they are given two trash bags. With the Sweet Case program, they can have much more. A Sweet Case is a children’s bag that can be decorated on the outside and inside: teddy bear, blanket, coloring books, crayons and a hygiene kit.
Teens in care are often overlooked and feel forgotten. They are still being moved from placement to placement and need the proper resources so they can travel with dignity. These sturdy duffle bags will do just that.
Make a $50 donation to get 1 Sweet Case to a child in foster care and 1 duffle bag to a teen in foster care. Click the button below and be sure to designate your donation to “Foster Youth Bag Sponsorship” in the drop-down menu.
