ATLANTA—Joseph Miller, a seventh-grader at Immaculate Heart of Mary School, Atlanta, and neighborhood friend Alex Matullo, a seventh-grader at St. Thomas More School, Decatur, collected new and gently used luggage, backpacks and duffel bags for children in foster care.
The boys learned that many children in foster care do not have luggage and are forced to put their only belongings in trash bags when they are moved from one home to another. The boys reached out to neighbors via the neighborhood watch email list serve and within days the front porch was loaded with donations.
More than 30 pieces of luggage were collected and delivered to the pick-up site at Georgia Cancer Specialists.
