Backpacks for Foster Kids
Backpacks for Foster Kids – Better known as the “B” bags (Being, Believing and Belonging) is a worthy program that makes a big difference in the lives of children in foster care. Oftentimes, many foster children move weekly, some even daily, using a garbage bag or even a grocery bag and those make a lousy travel companion. “Backpacks for Foster Kids” collects NEW backpacks, soft-sided suitcases, duffel bags and carry-ons for foster children. With each donation one less child has to use a plastic garbage bag or a grocery bag when it’s time to move.
Backpacks that are collected are donated to Voices for Children (VFC) and are distributed through the Guardian ad Litem (GAL) program. VFC and GAL are extremely grateful to GTR for their support and dedication to the program.
There are many ways you can help. Numerous, convenient drop-off centers are available throughout the Bay area to collect backpacks. Collect as many backpacks as you can and drop them off at the designated drop off centers. NEW backpacks are the bags of preference as they can also be used for school.
For additional information on VFC or to make a monetary contribution, contact Ronna R. Kennedy at (813)275-9300 or visit www.vfcgal.org.
