LUGGAGE OF LOVE

Our 5th annual Luggage of Love Campaign to benefit CASA Kane County is underway. We hope to exceed the $22,000 we raised last year by providing gift-packed suitcases to children entering foster care. CASA Kane County advocates for the best interests of these children (ages 0-21) in court.

THE REALITY

Foster children have very few belongings; just a couple of outfits, photographs, and a stuffed animal or toy. When they are 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.

CAN WE GET YOUR HELP?

Now through December 13th we are collecting donations of the following items in our office. Please stop in, say hi, grab a cookie, and help us help these kids. The items needed the most are:

  • Suitcases, backpacks, and duffle/baby bags to carry belongings
  • Gift cards for needed clothes, incidentals, furniture, linens and supplies at grocery, multi-chain stores and restaurants
  • Recreation passes for all youth to experience fun and exploration with park district classes, theaters, movie tickets, special occasion activities and birthday presents

Or, make a cash donation here. Thank you for your support!
