Luggage with Love hosted SOAR, their annual free community celebration event on September 30th, 2017. It was a Touch a Plane event with food trucks, a DJ, face painting, bounce houses, as well as raffles!
Luggage with Love (LwL) endeavors to assist the foster child’s transition to the placement family by providing needed support, clothing and hygiene items soon after a child has been placed in a new home. Most children who are placed in foster care come to the foster home with nothing except what they are wearing. Add to that, families who care for foster children often have very little support.
LwL was founded with the sole purpose of showing love and alleviating the stress and turmoil that can be part of the first night in a new foster home. LwL provides the support during the transition phase to demonstrate love and provide peace when it is needed most. In most cases, on the same day the request is received, LwL delivers a piece of luggage, containing clothing and other supplies to each newly placed foster child.
