Providing Hope And Inspiration

Our Annual Gala is to celebrate 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 150,000 Comfort Cases and Comfort XL duffel bags to children in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and the District of Columbia.

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.
