ABOUT DUFFLE 

DRIVE

Approximately 6,000 children enter the foster care system in Alabama each year. Most of those children pack their belongings in garbage bags while leaving the only home they have ever known. Leadership Tuscaloosa Class of 2020 is collecting donations to support the Alabama Foster & Adoptive Parent Association's mission of providing every child in foster care a proper bag to use during the relocation process.

Something as simple as a duffle bag can make a huge difference by giving these kids a sense of normalcy in an unstable environment. Not everyone can foster a child, but everyone can do something to support foster children. Our goal is to have 150 duffle bags donated by March 10, 2020, but we can't do this without your help. Donation options include hosting a drive, donating items, and financial contributions.

A single $50 donation sponsors one duffle bag with essential items for a child. Please consider helping our local foster families by completing the sponsorship form at the bottom of this page and emailing it to duffledrive@gmail.com.

Thank you for helping make a difference for children in the Tuscaloosa area!

OUR GOAL...

is to provide Tuscaloosa County Foster & Adoptive Parents Association with 150 Duffle Bags by March 10, 2020.
