Comfort Cases Bag Busters

NOVEMBER IS NATIONAL ADOPTION AWARENESS MONTH

Over 700 children enter the foster care system each day, some temporarily for many, long term. Most are given a trash bag to carry their belongings. These children have been neglected and often feel like they don’t matter. Together, with our friends at Comfort Cases we can work to eliminate trash bags from foster care.

For every $10 donated, Comfort Cases provides one child entering foster care with a bag where they can store their belongings and not experience the indignity of living out of a trash bag.

Social workers and police officers keep these bags in the trunks of their cars so they can give children a brand new bag instead of a trash bag when they enter foster care.
