MedPoint Digital’s new Service Committee successfully completed its first donation drive on Friday, January 29 – Bags 4 Kids. Over the course of a week and a half, our colleagues collected 40 bags to deliver to the Association House of Chicago, a nonprofit organization which supports thousands of under-served families and children through child welfare, foster care, family programs and other services.
Often, when kids are removed from their homes and placed in foster care, they gather their possessions to transport them in a garbage bag. Bags 4 Kids aims to make this difficult situation a little more dignified for these children by providing alternative transport options. The Service Committee, comprised of Janice Nakashima, Isabel Davis-Velazquez and Martin Izaguirre, is pleased with the results of this first effort and hopes to hold several more drives this winter season.
