BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - Regardless of the amount of time a child spends in foster care, it can sometimes be a traumatic experience.
Without everyday items that may bring them comfort, some children only arrive at their temporary homes with a grocery bag containing some of their belongings. To help them make an easy transition, Cable One is hosting a Buddy Bag Donation Drive.
The cable company has purchased 100 duffel bags and is requesting the following new, and gender neutral items:
- stuffed animals
- activity/coloring books, fleece blankets
- hygiene kits (toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, comb, lotion
Donations may be dropped off at Cable One Offices in Biloxi (786 Dr. Martin Luther King Blvd.) and Pascagoula (5100 Macphelah Road).
