What a great program this is – we just had to help spread the word. It’s called Luggage Of Love and it gives foster children luggage to use instead of trash bags.
If you have any old suitcases around, someone could really use them.
Whitney Elmore is the head of the UF Extension in Pasco County. and she says thousands of kids could use some luggage.
So she started up Luggage of Love. Her office collects gently used bags. Then, they get that luggage to foster kids and families and so far, they’ve helped out more than 200 kids.
If you’d like to donate any bags, Pasco County accepts them at the Extension Office in Dade City. (Click here for directions)
You can also drop them off at the tax collector’s offices all around Pasco County.
If you are in need of a bag, please visit this website.
