Foster Families NL is reaching out to businesses in our community who are passionate about making a difference in the lives of children. We are excited to introduce our new initiative, Backpacks of Comfort, which aims to bring a little bit of solace to children and youth during one of the toughest moments in their lives – when they are placed in foster care.
Through Backpacks of Comfort, FFNL will provide children with backpacks filled with comforting items that can help ease the overwhelming transition they face. These backpacks are tailored to different age groups, ranging from 0-2 years, 3-5 years, 6-12 years, and 13-18 years.
Backpacks of Comfort will be distributed to children entering foster care in Newfoundland and Labrador. We believe that by providing age-appropriate items and a sense of comfort, we can make this difficult journey a little bit easier. Together, we can make a positive impact and provide these children with a ray of hope during their time of need.
The Honda Canada Foundation has provided financial support to kickstart this initiative. We are so thankful for their support! Please consider partnering to maximize our reach and ensure that every child entering care in this province receives a little extra comfort.
