Summit Students Deliver “Foster Love” Care Packages
Young children who find themselves in the foster care system often arrive at a temporary residence under difficult circumstances and many without personal belongings. One non-profit group in our area is working to help these children by providing care bags intended to make foster placement a more loving and comfortable experience.
The “Foster Love Project” collects donations of placement bags and comfort items to provide to children when they arrive at a foster home. Each duffel bag or backpack includes new pajamas, a blanket, stuffed animal, book, toothbrush, toothpaste, bath soap and a wash puff. Summit Academy students, once again, volunteered at the collection event, loading the placement bags for delivery to foster agencies in Allegheny and Beaver Counties.
Our young men take great pride and gratification in contributing to the worthy cause of making foster placement just a little more comfortable for kids across our region.
