They called me a Valrico mom on a mission. I was so excited and grateful that abc action news covered our story. Our charity, The Knighten Project is currently in the middle of our holiday donation drive, Packing with Purpose.
The goal is to collect at least 25 suitcases or enough money to purchase what we need for teens aging out of the foster care system. We plan to fill each suitcase with everyday essentials that they need as they transition out of foster care system before Christmas.
We actually collect items and give out filled brand new suitcases all year round now – which I’m so happy about. But our big give is December, with the collection period Oct. 15th – Dec. 15th.
The news came out to share our story, and you can see the full write up here.
Please share this video/article and learn more about The Knighten Project, our mission and donate if your hearts leads you too.
More that 24,000 kids age out of U.S. Foster Care each year. Without that support that comes from an adoptive family or permanency connection, these kids face instant homelessness. Every donation towards our Packing with Purpose Donation drive will make sure these teens are not forced to carry their personal items in a trash bag. No Trash Bags here!
