We have something super fab planned for April…we’re going to create back-packs for children entering the foster care system in Chester County. The goal is for county social workers to grab a bag as they head out to transition a child between homes – giving them a little something to call their own through a stressful and challenging situation. We’re going to bundle a little Village love and empowerment as a small gesture to these sweet innocent babes.
We’re in contact with the county and once we have a method to connect the packs to the social work staff, we’ll kick-off this project!
Many thanks to Gerold M. – one of our facebook village community members – for bringing us this idea (and…super cool fact, he’s a Chester County ex-pat living in Korea! Proving you can still help out from afar!) Here was the video from amazing organization ComfortCases that spread this wonderful idea…
