Help us provide Comfort Bags for Foster Kids and
Apartment Kits for Foster Youth who are aging out of the system.
Comfort Bags and APARTMENT KITS FOR FOSTER KIDS
Throwing Starfish Foundation started in 2015 when we began assembling Comfort Bags for local foster kids. Foster kids are usually given garbage bags in which to carry their belongings when they enter the system. Our Comfort Bags are sturdy duffel bags full of comfort items, that also provide a reliable packing option for kids who are being moved around.
We used to only do our Comfort Bags once a year, but as we are growing we are going to be able to do these bags throughout the year. If you are interested in donating items to these bags please donate at the link above or reach out (firstname.lastname@example.org) to coordinate donations.
Items that we will need
Adult coloring books
Knit hats and gloves
Anything else you think a kid would enjoy!
We also assemble Apartment Kits for local foster kids who are aging out of the system and transitioning to independent living. We want to give these kids a head start with a bunch of apartment essentials. We will be making these kits on an ongoing basis throughout there year. They have been a big hit with the organizations we've worked with so far and we'd love to keep providing them.
Here are some of the items we include in the kits
