"Totes for Kids"  Fundraising Project

You support helps provide comfort to Washoe County children placed in emergency protective custody.

Every year hundreds of Washoe County children are abruptly removed from their home for their safety, by social workers or law enforcement, and they leave with only what they are wearing at the time.  

For more than a decade, Soroptimist International of Washoe County (SIWC) has been working with Washoe County Social Services to provide comfort care backpacks filled with a change of clothes, toiletries, books or toys, snacks and a blanket. The cost to SIWC to provide each emergency backpack averages about $50.

We provided 150 backpacks last year and need your help to assist more children in 2019.  Our fundraising goal is $7,500 ($50 x 150).

We regret that so many Washoe County children need emergency placement each year. We at SIWC are fortunate to be able to provide comfort to these children. 

Please make a Go Fund Me donation to help Washoe County children during this most stressful time in their young lives.  

Your donations will go directly to Soroptimist International of Washoe County (SIWC), a 501(c)(3) organization,  and will be dedicated solely to this project. 

Your generosity is appreciated.
