Our 7th annual Luggage of Love Campaign to benefit CASA Kane County is underway. Last year we raised over $35,000 in gift-packed suitcases to children entering foster care. This year we have set our sights even higher and are hoping to raise $40,000 in gift-packed suitcases. CASA Kane County advocates for the best interests of these children (ages 0-21) in court.
This year we have lunched a new website for Luggage of Love, please visit www.luggageofloveil.org for all the latest information on the 2021 Luggage of Love campaign.

Now through December 17th we are collecting donations of the following items in our office. Please stop in, say hi, and help us help these kids. The items needed the most are:
