Northside, Georgia Cancer Specialists collect 5,000 suitcases for Georgia's foster children

Posted on: January 27, 2019

 

More than 5,000 suitcases, duffel bags and other bags were collected for foster children in Georgia during the 2019 totes 2 tots suitcase drive.

More than 14,000 children, from infants to teenagers, are currently in the foster care system in Georgia. Many of these children shuffle their belongings in garbage bags when they are removed from their homes. totes 2 tots aims to change that by giving every foster child in Georgia a new or nearly new backpack, duffel bag or suitcase. Since totes 2 tots launched in 2003, the annual volunteer event has collected and distributed more than 60,000 bags.
