Come Join our Sweet Cases Assembly Party!
Holding a trash bag full of belongings, children in foster care are constantly moving from home to home, awaiting their forever home. Most are provided with only a trash bag to gather and carry their belongings, often losing their treasured few items along the way. With 1200 kids entering the foster care system in America everyday, that's a lot of lost teddy bears and blankies.
We have partnered with Together We Rise, a national foster care innovator, to provide foster children in our local community with personalized duffel bags, called Sweet Cases, filled with new comfort items such as stuffed animals, a blanket, a tooth brush, activity books and more.
If you're crafty, creative or just have a kind, loving heart, we could use your help in assembling the sweet bags we have pledged to provide, decorating them with each child's name, and filling with toys and handwritten notes of encouragement.
Please let us know if you can join us May 11th to kick start of difference made in the lives of displaced kids in our community. Refreshments will be provided. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 4th.
If you're not able to join us and you want to help, we welcome your donations of toys, toothbrushes, arts & crafts, games, etc and have created an Amazon Wish List to simplify the process.
