Christmas Comfort Kit Drive
Hundreds of children in our area enter foster care every year with just the clothes on their back or a few belongings in a garbage bag. In collaboration with Child Protective Services, we have developed Comfort Kits (quality bags with many useful items) for children who have just been uprooted from their family. In order to meet the need that our Child Protective Services and foster care organizations are requesting, we need 1,000 Comfort Kits.
The average retail costs for each of these age appropriate bags and many useful items is $50-70.
Our biggest need is for donations (so we can purchase items in bulk at around $40/kit) and volunteers to help us assemble the kits on December 7th. If you wish to purchase items on your own, please check out the "Shop" section below.
