Totes of Hope
Helping Children in Foster Care
When children enter foster care, too often they don’t have anything but trash bags in which to carry their items. Collecting totes and distributing them to foster children will allow them to transport items more efficiently and will also give them another item to call their own. YOU CAN HELP! Donate one of the following: Duffel bag, Back pack, Shoulder Bag, Drawstring bag, Sling Bag, or $6 towards the purchase of a tote. Our goal is to collect at least 25 totes, but more would be awesome! We will need all totes turned in to Mrs. Beck’s room by Wednesday April 16 th . This is so that on the next advisory Wednesday April 23 rd we can decorate them! Questions call 404-5754
