I used to hear many stories of children in foster care because my mom used to work hands-on with them. I learned they were given 2 trash bags with all of their belongings and told to live at a stranger's house. I wanted to help change that. I hope to give these children a sense of comfort. I will be providing a backpack full of essentials (toothbrush, deodorant, hairbrush, water bottle, shampoo/conditioner, and a razer), a fun activity (books, movies(if allowed), small toys and hand puzzles), and something comforting (blanket and stuffed animal). I hope to one day partner with my moms' company, IPPI in Meriden CT, and give these backpacks to these children and teens.
