Apex is asking the public to give items or monetary donations for this cause. A cocktail reception will be held on December 19th to give the donations to CASA Kane County, a Geneva-based nonprofit that advocates for the best interests of abused and neglected children in the juvenile court system.
Apex created a fundraising initiative to support CASA Kane County as they donate to Luggage of Love that provides suitcases filled with personal belongings for children within the foster care system. When moved between families, these children are often forced to carry their few keepsakes and belongings in plastic trash bags without any personal incidentals. Carrying their items in bags can be embarrassing and yet another reminder of how little they own.
All donations are 100 percent deductible. The goal is to reach $20,000 in value made up of 80 suitcases with an estimated amount of $250 each. Items can be dropped off at Apex CPAs & Consultants from now until December 14th. Please see address below.
