Kylie Mosher, Tesa Jones, and Lauren Freas of Salem County Vocational High School chose to collect and donate to our duffel bag project as their service project for their FEA club. They stopped in to help separate and organize and learn more about CASA! We are extremely thankful for their kindness and leadership and look forward to see them continue to make a difference in their communities.
The average foster care child moves 7 times before the age of 18. Most of the time, these children are moving place to place carrying only a garbage bag. Our goal is to eliminate trash bags as an acceptable form of luggage for the foster children and teens we serve. Most times when children are taken from their home, they don’t have necessities such as a toothbrush or change of clothes. They are alone and in need of a friend in their stuffed animal pal.
This will be an ongoing project due to the fact that we are constantly receiving new referrals from Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem Judges. Our goal is to eliminate trash bags as an acceptable form of luggage for the children we serve. Sponsor a child for only $25! Your donation is tax deductible!
