Contrary to popular belief, lawyers are often thinking of ways to do good things for society! I am using my website, and Hugo office, this week as a platform to share information about this important social welfare organization in our Minnesota community.
Bags of Hope was created by a foster mom. In her experience foster children commonly arrive at a new foster home without a single personal belonging except what they are wearing - no change of underwear, no pajamas, no toothbrush, etc. Those kids are already in a tough spot in life and I can't imagine how difficult it must be to arrive at a new home with nothing to your name.
In order to try and help foster kids on the move, Bags of Hope coordinates with social services to make sure the kids at least have a duffel bag/backpack with some extremely basic personal belongings in hand when they arrive at their new home.
This Thursday I am opening my office to receive donations to this charity. The street address is on the flyer below (I'm straight east of Subway on 61 in Hugo, next to the Edward Jones office).
Bags of Hope is not yet a 501(c)(3) registered charity. Just the same, anything you might be able to donate would be appreciated.
Thank you for your support.
