There are more than 400,000 children in the foster care system in America. Unfortunately, when CPS removes a child from their home they usually get a black trash bag to put their belongings in. From November 26-December 3, SHOES Ministry is hosting our annual Duffel Bag Drive to purchase duffel bags for these children. Each bag will have small toiletry items and a comfort item like a teddy bear or blanket. CPS workers then take these bags with them when they have to remove a child so the child has something nice to pack their things in. These bags give them a little big of dignity in the midst of a terrible situation.

SHOES Ministry's goal this year is to provide 300 duffel bags to CPS offices in the Greater Houston area. A gift of $20 provides a duffel bag, toiletries and a comfort item to a child entering the foster care system. This Giving Tuesday, please consider a donation to SHOES Ministry and let a vulnerable child in our community know they are not forgotten.

From November 26-December 3, you can give online at www.shoesministry.org or text BAGS19 to 44321.
