What They Do
Children rescued from abuse, abandonment, domestic violence, or homelessness often leave with no belongings. My Stuff Bags Foundation provides a duffle bag of new belongings to children arriving at crisis shelters across the country, as rescuing agencies do not have the resources to provide the most basic childhood essentials. Each bag contains a stuffed animal, toys, games, books, school supplies, toiletries, and a security blanket (often handmade by people across the country). Since 1998, they have distributed bags to over 650,000 children through over 2000 agency partners.
