The Forgotten Initiative Journey Bags
About this EventProject Description On Sunday, May 5 from 1–4 pm, join our team as we partner with The Forgotten Initiative to meet the practical needs of the foster care community in Will County. Children often come into foster care with nothing but the clothes on their backs. Journey Bags are duffel bags filled with personal and comfort items for children to call their own when they are abruptly taken out of their homes. The goal of Journey Bags is to know they are loved, prayed for and remembered. Our team will assemble 150+ Journey Bags during the BIG SERVE Change the World to be distributed to local foster care agencies.
Volunteer Qualifications All ages can volunteer. All children under 12 must serve with a parent or adult. Volunteer Needs Each volunteer should bring 1 pair of scissors and 1 piece of pattern fleece 1 or 2 yards in length that will be used to make blankets for the Journey Bags.
