Approximately 6,000 children enter the foster care system in Alabama each year. Many of those children pack their belongings in garbage bags while leaving the only home they have ever known. Donations collected by Leadership Tuscaloosa will be used to support the Alabama Foster & Adoptive Parent Association’s mission of providing every child in foster care a proper bag to use during the relocation process.
Something as simple as a duffle bag can make a huge difference by giving these kids a sense of normalcy in an unstable environment. Not everyone can foster a child, but everyone can do something to support foster children.
A single $50 donation sponsors one duffle bag with essential items for a child. Donations may also include zippered diaper bags and large backpacks.
