Starting Sunday Feb 18 we will be collecting new items and backpacks to give kids transitioning from the Orange County Foster Care system.
We will be partnering with The Give Back Pack, an organization that has been working with social services for more than four years and we are excited to be able to help!
We will collect new items through March and will have a kid- friendly backpack stuffing party at the end of March.
For more information on what items to donate and to read more about The Give Back Pack please click here.
We will provide new backpacks for toddlers, kids and teens filled with new pjs, toiletries, a stuffed animal, toy/book, and when we can a new pillow with pillow case.
When kids are re-homed, often the social worker arrives with a trash bag to put their belongings in.
We’d like them to be able to give them something with a little more dignity and so we brainstormed with social services and came up with this idea.
We’ve been doing it for about 4 years now. Here’s the link to our website!
