OPERATION BLESSING BAG
Sending the message "You Are Valuable" to kids in foster care
At Operation Blessing Bag we’re all about letting kids in foster care know that they're valuable. We send them that message through care packages called Blessing Bags. Every $20 donated sponsors a Blessing Bag filled with necessities and comfort items. We communicate with social workers about which items are making the biggest impact and strategically use items that will make their transition into foster care a little easier.
HOW IT WORKS
“400,000 U.S. kids in foster care.
26,000 or more will age out every year.
33% of aged out youth will become homeless.
I can’t sit still and let your story end like this.
My child, you are not invisible to me.
You are valuable.
You are irreplaceable.
And I will take action for you
because you are worth it."
