DAY 1 BAGS
NO MORE BAGS FOR FOSTER KIDS
Last year, more than 19,000 Texas children were removed from their homes due to evidence of abuse or neglect. Taken from everything they know and placed in foster care due to no fault of their own, many of these kids arrived at their placements wide-eyed and overwhelmed – with a trash bag of hastily packed possessions, if anything at all.
But one remarkable young man is helping these children in his own unique way.
What started as 16-year-old Hunter Beaton’s local-level Eagle Scout project has today, thanks to his dedication, grown into an amazing statewide effort to supply high-quality duffel bags for children who are removed from their homes.
