Hillsborough County Children’s Services is accepting donations of new or gently used duffel bags and suitcases through its Duffels of Dignity program.
Often, children in foster care or those escaping domestic violence or homelessness do not have proper luggage to store their belongings and instead use garbage bags.
The program aims to “help fill them with courage.”
Donations that are accepted include:
- New or gently used duffel bag (24 inches to 28 inches) or suitcase (wheelie bags, suitcases with handles and backpacks all are accepted)
- Personal care items
- Toothbrush and toothpaste
- Comb and brush
All personal care items should be new and in their original packaging.
Donations can be dropped off Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., at Hillsborough County Children’s Services, 3191 Clay Magnum Lane in Tampa.
Duffels to Dignity also has an Amazon Wish List, and the items can be mailed through the website directly to the Children’s Services campus. To see the items on the wish list, visit Amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/B6IAUACIID21.
