Luggage Day for Kids in Foster Care
October 17 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Children often enter and move through foster carrying all their belonging in garbage bags. Help children travel with dignity. Show them that they are not disposable, but are valuable and worthy. Moving between placements with luggage is one small way to help children internalize their value.
There are 533 children in foster care in Greenville county right now. We are asking the community of Travelers Rest to collectively donate enough luggage for each child in the county to travel with dignity.
During this event, anyone from the community can bring new and gently used luggage items (suitcases, duffels, and large back packs) to donate.
Foster parents from across Greenville county will be invited to come pick up luggage for the children who are in their home (or will soon enter/leave their home).
Thank you for supporting the most vulnerable children in the community!
