IKON Office Solutions “Bath Basket” Drive
When a child is removed from their home it is with little or no notice. Children do not have time to pack an overnight bag. They oftentimes leave their homes with little more than some personal items thrown into a trash bag. Employees at IKON donated new pajamas and bath items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste and bubble bath to give to children during the difficult transition into a foster home. A pair of pajamas and a toothbrush may seem trivial, but for a child that has just lost a family and personal belongings it means a lot.
What a timely blessing! We have recently placed several sibling groups of younger ages that will benefit from the donated pajamas and bath items from IKON. A huge thank you to IKON for keeping us in mind.

Thank you Southern Wine and Spirits for sponsoring the Believe in the Magic of Christmas holiday party for the foster children and families. You raised the holiday spirits of more than 100 foster children and showed them they can indeed believe in the human spirit.
