Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Children & Youth, Children & Youth Services

Mission: The sole purpose of Bags of Love is to provide necessities and comfort items to children who are in crisis due to neglect, abuse, poverty or homelessness. Through our unique distribution model, we address the immediate needs of these children and help support the community agencies caring for them.

Results: Bags of Love has distributed over 9,000 Bags of Love since its inception in 2008. We currently distribute more than 150 bags per month to local children at risk and in crisis.

Target demographics: Children in Crisis

Direct beneficiaries per year: 1808 Lane County Youth by providing them with Bags of Love

Geographic areas served: Lane County

Programs: Distributing bags of basic necessities to children in crisis. Because children are fragile, especially when removed from their normal lives, a Bag of Love provides a sense of security and hope. The child now has something that is his/her very own to hang onto as a “security blanket,” while simultaneously providing them with age appropriate necessities such as clothing, toiletries, and toys.
