On any given day, there are approximately 437,500 children in foster care in the United States. Most of them are removed from their homes with little more than the clothes on their backs. If they do have any personal belongings, they are given a trash bag in which to carry them.
One local charity’s mission is to change this statistic! Comfort Cases, believes that every child deserves to feel a sense of dignity. Every child deserves to pack their belongings in a special bag that they can call their very own. Every child deserves to have a cozy new pair of pajamas, a brand new warm blanket, and a new stuffed animal to hug during the traumatic transition into foster care.
Launch Workplaces is excited to announce that our members donated over 150 items to Comfort Cases this holiday season as part of our Launch Into Good Works program. Thanks to our generous members, we were able to help fill the inventory of backpacks, fleece blankets, stuffed animals and pajamas that a child can call their own. We are truly thankful for both the physical and financial contributions that were made and lives that will be impacted.
