“Helping children in crisis one Bag of Love at a time”

Bags of Love has been serving the community since 2008.


Our Story

For 11 years, Bags of Love has supported children of Lane County suffering from abuse, neglect, poverty, or homelessness.

A Bag of Love provides every child we connect with the essentials: clothing, toiletries, toys, books, school supplies, and a handmade quilt or fleece blanket. For a child in crisis, a Bag of Love delivers support and comfort at the time he or she is most vulnerable.

In our founding year, we distributed 25 Bags of Love to children in need. By the end of 2019, that number will have increased to more than 2,500.

Agency: Both Lane ESD Migrant Education Program and St. Vincent de Paul’s First Place Family Center– for their order of 38 bags each.

Support from the community:

Thank you to Tom and Janet Burg, who are some of our most consistent and generous donors.  Tom puts his shopping talents to use to help fill our shelves with school supplies, toiletries, baby toys, and anything else we might need.  Janet provides Velcro wallets for the older children.  Tom and Janet’s support has been especially valuable during these challenging times.
