Pennys for Foster Care Kids

The Problem

Many children enter into foster care each day. These kids are scared and feel all alone. They don't have many belongings and what they do have, they carry in plastic garbage bags.

Plan of Action

Pennys for Foster Care Kids collects spare change and gently used or new backpacks. I then fill them with things kids entering foster care may need or like, such as: toothbrushes, hairbrushes, shampoo. small toys, coloring books, or journals for older kids. Each backpack has a Penny Bear(TM) in it. Penny Bears(TM) are special bears created to give hugs and love to children in difficult situations. I then deliver the backpacks to the local Department of Children and Families to give to kids entering into foster care.
