When a foster child is taken from their home, the scene can be volatile and heartbreaking. Oftentimes, there's no time to pack their possessions so they are taken into the foster care system with little more than the clothes on their backs. Some move from foster home to foster home with the hand-me-downs they've collected in trash bags.
We want to give them something that will give them their OWN possessions to help perpetuate a feeling of identity - a feeling that is often lost when they go into the system. From donations sent to us by our Facebook followers, and longtime supporters, we put together and distribute backpacks filled with age-appropriate new pajamas, clothing, shoes, stuffed animals, books and toys.
The Give Back Pack is an IRS approved, tax exempt 501 (c) (3)
public charity. Your donations are tax deductible.
HOW WE DO IT
The Give Back Pack is a non-profit organization that strategically seeks shopping deals and advertises them to our followers through our website and social media. We parlay the activity of sale shopping to get some of that discounted merchandise into the hands of those who need it most... foster children.
