St. Pius X Participates in Totes 2 Tots Campaign
January 28th, 2016
Members of the St. Pius X community participated in the 14th annual Totes 2 Tots suitcase drive, which delivers new or nearly new backpacks and kid-sized suitcases to foster children in Georgia. St. Pius X joined forces with Our Lady of the Assumption elementary school and collected over 200 bags.
There are currently an estimated 8,000 children of all ages in the foster care system in Georgia. Many move their belongings in garbage bags when they are removed from homes, therefore, the need for luggage is great. This year, thanks to the generosity of people throughout the state, over 6,000 bags were donated. The campaign has collected and distributed more than 37,000 bags since it was first launched.
