BAGS4KIDS FOUNDATION Overview
Programs: We fill over 1,000 backpacks and diaper bags a year. Our goal is to fill 1,500 per year.
The Bags4kids foundation supports the well being of foster care children with emphasis on keeping their dignity, compassion, knowing someone cares, and having a bag to keep their worldly possessions in. The foundation assist and supports the mental well being and comfort of the children during their stressful transition from home to police station, Children’s Service offices, foster care agencies and shelters. We collect donations in the form of new or used bags and fill them with various items that will bring comfort to children in this transitional time of their lives. Any monetary donations will be used to purchase the items needed to fill the bags i.e. toiletries (sample size), small toys, writing materials, Bibles, books and other items that can help pass the time spent at police stations or Children''s Service offices.
