Review for Bags of Love, Eugene, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

In May of 2008, I started Bags of Love to help children in crisis. Over the last 9 years, Bags of Love has helped thousands of children with a bag of items necessary to their well being. The bags include a quilt, a stuffed animal, toiletries such as toothpaste, toothbrush, soap, etc., toys, school supplies, clothes such as pants, shirt, coat, sweat shirt, socks, underwear, and t-shirts, and anything else available.

Bags of Love has come such a long way. We have qualified for grants, have a wonderful donor and sponsor base, but best of all, we have a dedicated volunteer base. Some have been with us for 7 or 8 years. Each one generously gives their time, money, but most importantly, their love for the kids.

Two years ago, I was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Our Executive director, Becky Stenzel, and our hardworking Board of Directors took over running Bags of Love. They have built an even stronger charity and I am so proud. I am finally cured of cancer and able to begin participating again. What a joy.

I hope you will learn as much about Bags of Love and participate with us to help these children in crisis.
