Loads Of Love is a program that helps provide children removed from their homes the basic necessities and a few extra items in order to help them start gaining a sense of safety and hope in a very traumatic time for them.
Often when a child is removed from their home, they're only able to grab a few items in a trash bag. Many times they aren't even able to do that much and they simply come with what they are wearing. Clothes, favorite toys, books, even treasured keepsakes are left behind.....Sometimes forever.
Loads of Love fills in the gap by providing every child in custody with the basic necessities to get started in a new home. Each child is given a Loads of Love bag with a weeks worth of clothing, two sets of pajamas, socks and undies or diapers and wipes, shoes and a toiletry bag. They also receive a new toy, a new stuffed animal and a blanket so that they have something that belongs to just them. Loads Of Love is an 'On-call' program and volunteers are available to help deliver bags.
Loads Of Love is an amazing opportunity for us to show the love of Christ to those who are at a very vulnerable time in their lives; foster children and foster parents alike are greatly impacted.
