Providing Hope And Inspiration

Our 2024 Annual Farm-to-Table Feast & Fundraiser is a celebration of the incredible work we have done as a community to bring dignity and hope to youth in foster care, and to raise funds to ensure this important work continues. Since 2013, we have distributed over 250,000 Comfort Cases and Comfort XL duffel bags to children in all  50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the United Kingdom.

With 700 children entering foster care every day, and over 430,000 currently in care, we must keep going. Thank you for joining our mission to eliminate trash bags from the system. You are truly making a difference by letting these children know that they matter.

The 2024 Hope Scholarships

In 2015, Comfort Cases began awarding scholarships to support youth in foster care attending college or trade school. Each scholarship will provide tuition assistance to graduating high school seniors enrolled in an accredited undergraduate program or trade school program in the Fall of 2024.

According to the most recent research, less than 3% of youth in foster care graduate from college. The Comfort Cases community is committed to changing that number. Education opens doors to better opportunities, and every child deserves the chance for a bright future.
