I am SO excited to tell you about an amazing organization, Comfort Cases. If you have not heard about their amazing work you can check out their profile on Ellen (!!) here and their Facebook page here.
On Sunday, December 3rd, we will be hosting our first Packing Party on behalf of Comfort Cases. We will be packing each new backpack or duffel bag full of items such as blankets, books, pajamas, toothbrushes, toothpaste, stuffed animals and more. All bags will then be donated to the DCFS of LA County where they will be handed out to youth of all ages in the foster program.
The mission of Comfort Cases is very simple - no child should have to arrive at a new home with a trash bag full of their belongings. The goal of the Packing Party is to bring a little bit of light and hope with new items that these children can call their own.
So many Moms whom I've had the pleasure of meeting through Light House gatherings are looking for something to give their time and/or money to - something that really touches home. I can't imagine a group of more worthy children than those in our local foster programs. I encourage you to get involved with us! If you'd like to donate items, here is what we are looking for:
*New or very gently hugged stuffed animals
*Soap or Body Wash
*Books (for toddlers up to teenage reads)
*Pajamas (from newborn to XXL adult sizes)
All items will need to be dropped off by November 29th to 3728 Conquista Avenue.
We also are looking for volunteers to help pack these amazing packs! Join us on December 3rd from 12pm - 4pm.
If you're interested in any of the above, please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or text at 424-210-9925.
Thank you to all! x Lauren
