Every two minutes in the U.S. a child is taken from their home and placed in the foster care system. Agencies send more than 90 percent of these children directly to foster homes, institutions or group facilities within 24 hours of removal from the only home they have known. In most cases, their journey begins with little more than the clothes on their backs.
We want to invite you to help us change this reality; to be a part of helping thousands of children going into foster service retain a sense of self-worth and dignity.
Come and join us at Comfort Cases’ “Bring Comfort Home” Winter Packing Party event from 10 am to 12 p.m., December. 13 at CoesterVMS headquarters, 7529 Standish Place, Suite 200, Rockville, MD.
At this event volunteers will help assemble “Comfort Cases” to be distributed during the holiday season to children in need. Please bring several items from the list below to help support this great cause.
Items in need:
- Small Suit Case/BackPack/Duffle Bag
- Pajama Set
- Tooth Brush
- Stuffed Animal
- Athletic Shorts and Sweatpants
- Hair Brush and Comb
- Lotions and Soaps
- Coloring Books and Crayons
- Pens and Pencils
- Monetary Donations will be accept: https://comfortcases.org/make-donation/
Comfort Cases, a non-profit charitable organization that provides vitally needed personal items to children in the foster system, offers children the necessities as they begin their journey to the rest of their lives. Through the simple act of providing a bag with personal items that they can always call their own, Comfort Cases is making a difference.
We thank you in advance for your time and your generous donation to Comfort Cases. You have become a part of the movement to change a child’s life and build a foundation of compassion that they will never forget.
