West Virginia


A new statewide project is calling attention to an aspect of moving children into foster care that’s often overlooked–that is, carrying belongings in something other than a grocery bag or trash bag.

“Carry-On” will collect new and gently-used bags and suitcases for children in foster care across the state.

NAME OF PROGRAM

Carry On

ITEMS NEEDED

  • New and gently-used duffel bags, backpacks and suitcases to distribute to children in need.
  • Personal items to put in the bags, like toothbrushes, soap, disposable cameras and stuffed animals.
  • Don’t forget items for the winter, such as socks, hats, gloves and scarves.
