One of our customers, Tony Bonetti from Comfort Cases, purchased many bears and stuffed animals from us last month. We learned that those plush toys are put into backpacks, which are then given to youth as they enter the foster care system.
Our stuffed animals are paired up with essentials such as blankets, shampoo, pajamas and the like, which help kids on a practical and emotional level as they ease into their new homes.
We're happy to be of help to such a great company and their worthy mission! Did you know that May is National Foster Care Month?
Here's our #813, which is a stuffed husky that's perfect for boys and girls alike. This one is being placed in a snug backpack decorated with hearts and other patterns. According to their website, they have shipped over 11,000 cases in 32 states in 2017 alone!
Their center is in Rockville, Maryland, where volunteers go each week to process donations, count inventory, assemble bags and stage for deliveries.
