We always know that our Hope Packs are going to a good cause, but we love it when we hear from the agencies that are using them.
Recently, SAFE Alliance Foster & Adopt offered an update on their blog that included this anecdote from one of the agency caseworkers who gave a Hope Pack to a little boy who had just come into foster care:
“I recently had the privilege of giving one of these bags to a young child who came to his new foster home with only the clothes he was wearing. The only toy he had from his birth home was a ninja turtle stick. We opened the bag, and he was so excited to find ninja turtle pajamas and night light, a star wars toothbrush, a car, a soft blanket, and several other items just for him!
“This was also a huge help to the foster parents who had no little boy items in the home, as they had previously cared for preteen girls. Thank you to both groups for your generosity. Your kindness makes a big difference!”
