screen-shot-2017-11-01-at-5.22.15-pmComfort Cases Fall packing Party

Join fellow members of the Harvard Club on Saturday, November 18th from 1:00pm to 3:00pm to help pack cases that will be delivered to children and youth entering foster care. Comfort Cases are provided to children and youth in foster care to replace the trash bags they are traditionally asked to carry with the few belongings they may have to call their own.
 

Comfort Cases is a volunteer led nonprofit that is committed to providing comfort and dignity to children entering the foster care system and other at-risk youth. No child should ever be given a trash bag to use as a suitcase as they are forced to make a scary transition. Comfort Cases assembles and distributes overnight bags filled with essential and comfort items to meet the basic needs of these children and bring some happiness into their lives. As November is National Adoption Month, it is Comfort Cases' goal to pack 1,000+ cases, which will be delivered to children and youth entering foster care. To date, Comfort Cases has delivered over 25,000 cases to children in twenty-four (24) states because every child deserves the dignity of having something of their very own and knowing that their community cares about them.
