Adopt a High School Senior from Foster Care

Adopt a High School Senior from Foster Care

Our annual Adopt a High School Senior from Foster Care Campaign is one of the most ambitious and necessary initiatives we run at Day 1 Bags. We are dedicated to finding and supplying every single foster child that is graduating from high school with a high-quality duffle bag, rolling backpack, hand-stitched quilt, stainless steel water bottle, a $100 gift card, and so many more gifts. Foster youth are significantly less likely to graduate high school and finish out their education based on individuals that have the care of one or two parents. In fact, less than 50% of all foster youth graduate with a high school diploma. Even then, those that do end up graduating are not given the proper celebrations and gifts that they deserve. Many haven’t the family or community to celebrate their accomplishments. This simple fact is preciously why we have created the Adopt a Senior Campaign. With your help, we can ensure that every senior in Texas (or your current state) has their foster seniors graduating with the necessary supplies that will help them in their future college, trade, or career.

Special Gifts – Handmade quilts, zipper pouches, laundry bags – To much of our surprise, this year we had thousands of volunteers make personalized gifts for the Class of 2022 seniors. We were not only able to collect and distribute over 600 quilts this year, but we are already at 90% sponsored quilts for the Class of 2023. Due to the success of this special gift, the state of Missouri is going to have the same type of celebration for its Class of 2023 seniors. Here is our feature photo from the quilt effort from Class of 2022:
