We are excited to partner with Hope in a Suitcase this year to provide much needed bags and clothing to local children entering foster care.
Here is their mission statement from their website:
"Our mission is to provide children and teens in foster care with a suitcase/duffel bag, along with basic essentials and comfort items, to make their transition and circumstances just a little easier. We want children to enter a new foster family and/or school community with dignity, and without the lasting memory of arriving with a trash bag."
Our goal as a church is to provide this wonderful organization with 30 fully packed bags as a part of their effort to help kids during the holidays. We have multiple options for you to help us make this happen this year:
- Provide a complete bag (rolling carry-on suitcase, clothing, comfort items) This can be done for between $150-$200.
- Provide a partial bag (clothing, comfort items). This can be done for between $100-$125.
- Provide a suitcase (rolling carry-on or medium sized duffle). $30-$60
This is a great opportunity to shop as a family and be a blessing to a child in need. You can also partner with another family for a fun group activity.
If you are interested in taking part, please email Pastor Mike at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss how you can help.
