Duffels For Kids
In 2013 we learned children entering the foster care system were often pulled from sometimes dangerous situations with only 5 minutes to gather their things and they were given a black trash bag to collect their belongings. Our hearts broke over this news and we decided to help by supplying a brand new duffel bag with personal care and comfort items.
Since we started in May of 2013, we have given away over 3,500 bags to different agencies. We work with many organizations that regularly deal with children in crisis; including: law enforcement, domestic abuse shelters, homeless shelters, local schools and foster care programs.
The contents of each bag are age-specific and go to children from newborn to seventeen years of age.
Duffels For Kids include:
- Duffel bag
- Fleece blanket
- Stuffed animal
- Hygiene items: toothpaste, toothbrush, hair brush, shampoo/conditioner and lotion (ages 3-17) deodorant (ages 10-17), baby wipes, powder, shampoo, wash, and lotion (ages 0-2)
Faith Hope & Love is happy to provide Duffels for Kids bags to the following agencies.
