With Love, In Action


<<First Name>>-
 

Often arriving with nothing except the clothes on their back, foster children can end up in a new home any time, day or night. Scared and perhaps confused, foster children try to make sense of what they left behind and what lies ahead. 

It is common for children to be placed in a family without any notice and without any time to prepare. Therefore, With Love, has stepped into action by creating and assembling placement bags. These bags include essential items such as diapers, wipes, underwear, socks, Tylenol, shampoo, toothbrush and toothpaste; additionally, some books, a few special toys and handmade blankets are included. Other items are gathered based on needs and age of the child. These bags then become the child’s property, sometimes their only possessions.

Some companies have generously supported this project in various ways. With Love, has recently received a $5,000 grant from McGraw-Hills publishing for 100 new bags. Additionally, Adidas has given a big discount on bags, including ones that are age and gender specific.
 
As always, With Love, needs and appreciates gently used and new donations. Formula and diapers would be a great contribution to these placement bags. Even formula samples or an opened box of diapers go a long way.
 
New beginnings and transition and can be difficult.  These placement bags are a small reminder that they - both the children and the foster families - are cared for and surrounded With Love,.
