First Night Foster Care Backpack Collections

Leading up to and throughout the month of May, Clara's Hope collects items for first night foster care backpacks.  Hundreds of backpacks are stuffed with new pajamas, socks, underwear, blanket, flashlight, toothbrush, toothpaste, coloring book/journal, crayons/markers, pens, and much more.  

Every child (baby to teen) should have what they need for their first night in foster care.  They have enough to worry about without having to wonder how they are going to brush their teeth.

To donate, start collecting or help with stuffing backpacks, contact us or email
