Suitcases for Kids Project

It is difficult to imagine that some children and teens can be faced with quickly packing up their precious belongings, into a garbage bag, when having to move to a different home into foster care. Whatever the reason, removing child from one home and placing them in another, is traumatic.
A suitcase can be an essential item that can help restore dignity and hope. It would help these children to literally and emotionally unpack and sort through their feelings; provide a little security; and yes, bring hope.

Why is Lethbridge Family Services committed to Suitcases for Kids?

We learned about the need through social workers during our LFS Angel Tree Christmas Campaign. We felt it was essential to help these children and teens, not only at Christmas, but whenever they need help throughout the year.

Fundraising Goal: $10,000
How many children will we help? 65 children in Lethbridge and area
Cost of each suitcase with contents: $150

How can you help?

Please help us help these children move from a plastic bag of embarrassment, hurt, fear, and insecurity to a suitcase of hope.
