Packing Hope

"There are nearly 13,000 children in Michigan's foster care system." - Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, 2017

Through our outreach program, Packing Hope, we supply brand new backpacks filled with clothing, books, baby items, grooming items, toys, school supplies and more to children in Michigan’s foster care system.

Each backpack is labeled with the intended gender and age of the recipient based on the items enclosed and donated to foster care programs in the Metro Detroit Area.

These backpacks are a small way for us to show children and teens in the foster care system that they are loved and not forgotten.

Listed below are the much-needed items to fill our backpacks.  If you are interested in donating backpacks or other items for Packing Hope, please call (248) 469-6607 or email us.
