Helping Foster Kids in Illinois - Charity of the Quarter
I was so happy to join my wife, Carla Molinaro Herr, in delivering a $10,500 donation to Children’s Home + Aid this morning. Last fall Carla’s club, GFWC Beverly Junior Womens Club collected over 700 pieces of luggage for foster children. The 16,000 foster kids in Illinois move an average of 8 times during their time in foster care and often have nothing more than a garbage bag to carry their belongings. Something as simple as a bag or luggage provides them with dignity and a permanent, transportable piece of home. Their project won the 2015 National Make A Difference Day award from Newmans Own, USA Today and the Points of Light Foundation.
PLEASE consider joining our efforts to support this wonderful organization. Even something as small as $5 helps. You can donate by visiting https://www.childrenshomeandaid.org/cairnforkids/
