Watch this video of Rob Scheer talk about his non- profit Comfort Cases which has a mission similar to our own Luggage of Love program. Youth Empowerment Siskiyou's Luggage of Love program concentrates on serving foster youth right here in Siskiyou County. Luggage of Love gives youth entering foster care a comfort bag. Our comfort bags contain things like a pillow, blanket, stuffed animal, toiletries, a flashlight... dignity. Hope. We don't want our County's most vulnerable children transporting their life in trash bags.
Our Luggage of Love program is in need of a Coordinator. This is a volunteer position that, at minimum, would require less than 5 hours per month. The Coordinator would be responsible for corresponding with our partner agencies following MOUs in place, taking inventory and organizing Luggage of Love donations, making requests for supplemental purchases in order to meet the needs of comfort bag recipients, deliver bags to partner agencies when required and organize the annual Valentine's Day Luggage of Love Donation Drive.
If you are interested in volunteering with Luggage of Love in any capacity please reach out to us at info@YESiskiyou.org or call (530) 841-0844
