LUV PACS is an organization designed to help children in need in the community of Antrim County. We have been in operation for eight years, and we have supplied many items to children. Some of these have been back packs and homemade flannel quilts to be given to children that are being taken from the home and being placed in a foster home. These back packs contain personal hygiene items and comfort items that have helped the children transition into their new surroundings and the children love receiving them. We have partnered with a Foster Care Coalition group that meets once a month to brain storm ideas to help foster children and their foster families bond with one another.
We also try to supply any basic items for children (0 through Teens) in need in our community. LUV PACS has given out winter wear, socks, underwear, pajamas, beds, mattresses, foundations, bedding, and just about any basic item a child might be in need of. We have worked closely with the Department of Human Services, the Child Protective Service, Foster Care workers, schools in our area, churches, and any organization that works with children in need. We are expanding our program this year by opening a children's resale shop, “KIDS CORNER” by Luv Pacs, in Bellaire. This resale shop will be open to the public to help with funding, but children that are sent to us from agencies that work with families will be able to shop free according to our guidelines.
We are very excited about this new adventure and are asking for your help. Our hope is that you will be willing to help support us with donations so we are able to get the resale shop up and running. Your donations will enable us to buy some of the basic items that need to be new to give to the children such as, socks, underwear, pajamas, shoes and hygiene items.
We are now in the progress of getting the store ready and are hoping to open in the early Spring of this year. People have already started donating clothes for the shop and many have donated their time to get the inside of the shop ready. We are blessed with a community that has so many generous people willing to step up and help the children.
