Adventure Bags is such an amazing organization! From the first moment I stepped onto the AB house to volunteer, I fell in love. Working in the school system, I knew there are children in need, but never the demand was so high. It's heartbreaking! However, with the help of Adventure Bags, we can help add a smile to their face and give them something to call their own. It also provides people in the community, especially children, the opportunity to come volunteer and bag bags. Together we are making a difference!
Adventure Bags is an incredible organization... it's totally donation funded, and no one gets paid. I met Debbie, the president of AB about a year ago...at a Barrow Co. Chamber of Commerce networking meeting. I have watched her talk about the "why" behind her purpose week after week. Her passion for the cause is catching...I started out giving donations and volunteering, now I'm a board member. She has touched countless numbers of people with her simple goal of giving kids in crisis something to call their own. Sadly, the need for this service continues to grow.
I just recently became a board member of adventure Bags. Prior to this I was a volunteer. I believe fully in what Adventure bags is doing. When A child has to leave her or his home they are given a book bag with everything they need to clean themselves from the head to the toes, and they are given a personal related to their age. If you were taken from your home with nothing, just think what it would mean to you to get this book bag. I think it is wonderful and I support Adventure Bags, which is why I accepted a position on the Board.
Adventure Bags is a number one priority with my time and effort of growing. The purpose is to help children in distress of daily hygiene and mental stability. Adventure Bags gives children going into Foster Care a book bag full of instruments such as tooth brush, tooth paste, washcloth, crayons, coloring book, such to name a few of the items. This organization is non-profit and strictly donation driven. Hopefully Adventure Bags will receive this grant to reach more of 'our' children in dire need of us.
