 “Helping Kentucky’s Most Vulnerable Citizens, Our Foster Children, One Duffel At a Time”

When children enter Foster Care, they are only given a trash bag to carry their belongings. Brendon’s Duffels of Hope replaces these trash bags with durable new duffels filled with items of care and immediate need.  A Brendon’s Duffel of Hope provides each child with a sense of security and hope, while providing necessities such as toys, toiletries and clothing. The child will be given something of his/her very own, which gives them a sense of ownership, love and security, while helping to support the community agencies caring for them.

 What’s in a Brendon’s Duffel of Hope?

Each Brendon’s Duffel of Hope contains essential items of immediate need appropriate for each child or teenager. The contents of the bag provide a diversion from the scary time they find themselves in, as well as comfort and a sense of ownership.
