Eckerd Raising Hope with Luggage for Children and Families
Did you get new luggage for the holidays? Do you need a home for your old stuff? If so, we have the perfect place. Foster children, through no fault of their own, are removed from their homes with as little as a black garbage bag in which to carry a few possessions. Foster homes are known to be temporary, so moving from place to place can happen often, all with just a black garbage bag to make the move. Through January, QCA is collecting new and/or gently used suitcases and duffel bags to afford these children with some sense of dignity and self-worth that cannot be given with a trash bag. Join us today with RAISING HOPE with luggage!
Our outreach is part of the Jack and Ruth Eckerd Foundation's Raising Hope program. Partnering with Grace Lutheran Church, we will be collecting new and used suitcases, duffel bags, and carry on sized bags for smaller children. Simply bring your luggage to the Corporate Office, or contact Sharlene to coordinate pick up: Sharlene.Lairscey@QCAusa.com.
