Mission: The mission is to help distribute across Georgia ADVENTURE BAGS to agencies in Georgia. With these bags it is our desire to begin an ongoing opportunity to help agencies give children who are displaced something of their own to feel a sense of security when what they knew to be home, is not an option at that time.
Results: Over 2,000 book bags have been distributed to agencies in 29 counties since our "kick off" October 15, 2011
Target demographics: children in crisis.
Direct beneficiaries per year: 1069 children in 28 counties of GA
Geographic areas served: /with 29 GA counties
Programs: Book bags filled with essentials used every day as well as comfort items such as coloring books, crayons, journals, pens, pencils, small toy/activity and always a stuffed animal. These bags are given to children from infant to 18 years.
Adventure Bags is an awesome organization that serves children in our local communities by providing them with something to call their own when they've lost everything else. Having 3 children of my own I understand how transition can be difficult for children. I also know how attached they become to certain items (security blankets and such). Adventure Bags provides children with a brand new book bag filled with toiletry items, school items, and things for fun. Most importantly each child receives their own stuffed animal. This simple bag serves as a token of love from community partners that we care for each and every child.
Amazing organization for a fantastic cause. What a wonderful idea...giving book bags full of necessities to children in foster care. The people behind this organization have the biggest hearts and are fulfilling a great need in these kids lives.
