Review for Bags4kids Foundation, California City, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I started bags4kids 8 years ago after seeing too many foster children coming into the system with only the few clothes they were wearing. I gathered 11 bags and filled them with items I thought might comfort a child, items too keep them busy if they were sitting at a police station for hours at a time, hygiene items and books and toys to call their own when they reached their new home. Since then-we have given out over 8,000 bags and hope to fill 8,000 more. Our bags are also given for "rewards" and for a foster child's birthday should the bio families not bring a present when they come for their visit.

Role:  Volunteer & I gathered 11 bags. They were such a huge hit-now I've filled 8,000 bags!.
