Backpacks of Love is an organization that gives backpacks full of supplies to kids as they enter foster care. When these kids enter foster care, it is normally an emergency and things happen quickly. In most cases, these children have few belongings. Even worse, the few items these children have are often thrown in trash bags.
This is where The Blue Ribbon Project’s Backpacks of Love steps in. Whenever someone enters foster care, The Blue Ribbon project is notified by the Department of Social Services and a bag is brought immediately to the child’s location.
