The Forgotten Initiative
Sunday, May 18, 2014 from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM (CDT)
Project Lead: Amy Plummer
Project Description: Join our team as we partner with The Forgotten Initiative to meet the practical needs of the foster care community in Will County. Children often come into foster care with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Journey Bags are backpacks filled with personal and comfort items for children to call their own when they are abruptly taken out of their homes. The goal of Journey Bags is to know they are loved, prayed for and remembered. Our team will assemble 100+ Journey Bags during the Big Serve to be distributed to CASA OF WILL COUNTY and Lutheran Child and Family Services of ILL.
Volunteers will be placed on teams of 2-5. All children under 12 must serve with a parent or adult.
What supplies should volunteers provide?
Team volunteers should bring 1 scissors and 1 piece of pattern fleece 3 yards in length that will be used to make blankets for the Journey Bags.
