Bags of Love
When a child is removed from their home by the local child protective service, it is often in the middle of the night. Usually, they can take nothing with them but the clothes on their backs. They are frightened and very alone. Their parents may have just been arrested and taken away in handcuffs, or worse.
A child orphaned by a parent's drug addiction, or perhaps by abuse or neglect, often loses everythng: their toys, clothes, personal items, even family pictures. These children are in need - not because of anything that they have done but because of the poor choices of others. All children removed from their homes are victims.
Our Bags of Love program is designed to help ease the transition for children when they must be removed fromtheir home. We provide them something to call their very own. The contents of the bags are very basic, but special: a kid-sized handmade quilt, a soft, cuddly toy, personal care items (comb, hairbrush, toothbrush, toothpaste and such), two toys for young children and age appropriate items for older children. Our Bags of Love are age and gender appropriate and are delivered to the local agencies charged with removing children due to abuse or neglect. "It's My Very Own" helps ease the pain by showing them the love of their community.
Contact your local chapter of "It's My Very Own". Ask how you can help. Volunteers are always needed to sew quilts and bags. You can donate items for the bags, or donate money to purchase needed items. All gifts are tax deductible and go directly to help children in your area. Help us help them!
