Comfort Cases continue their wonderful efforts in packing backpacks for children and young adults entering the Foster Care system. If you care to learn more about them or make a donation, you may do so on their website: 


On that site you will also see a link to a "WISH LIST" they have on Amazon. You can order items needed from Amazon and they will ship directly to Comfort Cases. 

As their mission statement shares, "no child should have to enter the foster system and go to a strange new home with nothing but a trash bag filled with a few items of clothing. Comfort Cases makes sure they have new pajamas, personal toiletries, toothbrush, soap, pens and pencils, a journal or coloring book, and a new stuffed animal, all packed in a bright new backpack.
