My Stuff Bags served children -- with duffel bags and blankets -- in 13 states between January 2018 and October 2019: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Indiana, Iowa, Nevada, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas and Utah.
We are proud to partner with Carrying Hope, a non-profit organization in League City, Texas. Their goal is to give a Hope Pack filled with comfort items (including blankets!) and necessities to every child entering the foster care system in Texas.

El'lesun - Healing Hearts and Restoring Lives
MVOB partner El'lesun is a Columbus non-profit organization that advocates for and serves the foster care community. El’lesun works with The Bair Foundation, Alicia’s Closet and Franklin County Children’s Services.
El’lesun was founded in 2019 by Jaye Turner, who – at a very young age – experienced the foster care system after neglect and abandonment by her parents. She is pictured at right with her son as they picked up 200 blankets at our workshop.
