When Allison Sumrall and a group of friends heard that children being placed in foster care were bringing their belongings in trash bags, she decided to act. Along with the organization Together We Rise, Allison arranged for the donation to KidsPeace FCCP of ten “Sweet Cases” – a duffle bag filled with a blanket, stuffed animal, color book and crayons and some personal hygiene products for the children coming in to foster care.
“These kids feel lost enough when they’re taken out of their biological homes,” she said. “They should not feel their belongings are trash!” Children receiving a “Sweet Case” have been thrilled to have a bag and comfort items of their own.
