When a child enters into the foster care system in our county, we pack them what is called a "care bag". In this care bag, we put some much needed necessity items:
Toothbrush, toothpaste, soap, shampoo, hairbrush, diapers, wipes, pillow, pillowcase with name embroidered on it, toy or stuff animal, and bible.
We personalize these bags to match the appropriate age of the child. Click on the link and pack a bag for a foster child! Contact Kay and she will pick it up!
We provide each foster child in Spartanburg county a pillowcase with our logo on it, new pillow, bible, blanket, toy, and a bag filled with age appropriate hygiene items. Each bag cost approximately $60-75.
Foster children come into care the majority of the time with little to nothing to call their own. The Care Bags are a way of helping met some of the needs of the foster family and foster child.
We embroider the child’s name of each pillowcase. With the pillowcase being personalized, this gives them something that is theirs and no one can take away from them.

"Care bags are just what my husband and I needed when we learned we were getting new foster children. The care bags were filled with items that we needed to meet the needs of the children we were receiving. The best part about a care bag, from PS I Love You, is knowing the children coming into our home, are being prayed over before, during, and after the packing and delivery."
Thank You PS I Love You Ministries!
