Why Do Foster Children Need You?

Over 500 children enter the foster care system each day and most of them may be removed from their home with their belongings stuffed in a trash bag. These children have been neglected and often feel like they don’t matter.

A Day 1 Bag gives children entering foster care a sense of dignity and hope. Each bag is of the highest quality with so much room for their only treasures. Dignity, not trash, is what I believe is needed during this difficult time.

Your donation will make a huge impact on the lives of these youth.

The only way Day 1 Bags can fulfill these FREE bag requests through your donations. We  will do my best to fulfill EVERY order. However, if there are not enough donations to cover the cost, we will contact you to work with you on an alternative bag or backpack from other non-profits OR we can fundraise for the bags. Your donations are vital to the youth we serve.
