Donate to Duffle Bag Bash to help children in foster care

On any given day, there are more than 2,000 children in R.I. living in a foster care placement. Ten minutes – that may be all the time a child being removed from their home or moved to another foster placement has to pack their entire life – too often into a trash bag.

This year, the pandemic has led to canceling the annual Duffle Bag Bash to collect gift cards and new suitcases for children in foster care. However, people can still help make a difference with a donation. Between now and Aug. 9, the goal is to collect $30,000 to make life better for children in foster care by purchasing suitcases and duffle bags and other essentials.
