"What's in a bag?"

Donating a placement bag is a great way to create a special donation for a foster child.


{1}  Choose a Bag, Gender and Age Group
{2}  Shop for items listed

{3}  Drop donated items off at the Women's Ministries table in the church foyer (We only have storage space for non-clothing items listed below to go into the bags we assemble. Safe Haven will add any additional items for each child).

Choose a placement bag, diaper bag, or teen bag from the list below. You may donate an entire bag and purchase everything on the list for a specific age/gender child or donate any non-clothing items listed for a particular age and gender. Women's Ministries donates a carry sack, blanket or quilt and takes donations for non-clothing items listed below for the bags we assemble.

Safe Haven requests all items are new with tags.
