When a child is removed from their home by the local child protective service, it is often in the middle of the night.  Usually, they can take nothing with them but the clothes on their backs.  They are frightened and very alone.

A child orphaned by a parent's drug addition, or perhaps by abuse or neglect, often loses everything: their toys, clothes, personal items, even family pictures. These children are in need - not because of anything they have done, but because of the poor choices of others.  All children removed from their homes are victims.  Bags of Love is dedicated to making their lives a little brighter.
