Project Description

The Duncan-Iles Foundation, Inc. has awarded a financial assistance grant to the “Bags of Love” Program that champions the immediate needs of children of all ages in Buncombe and Henderson County when their parents or guardian are taken into custody by authorities or are found not to be providing a nurturing environment, the children are suddenly removed from the home with little or no personal effects. These children are provided a “love bag” containing a homemade quilt or blanket, stuffed animals, toy, and personal hygiene items in an attractive drawstring bag that can immediately become “their very own” at no cost to the child or DSS.
