Everyone is doing “favorite moments" countdowns to the new year and we want to play too! Here are Duffels4Kids’ top 5 moments…


5. The Duffels4Kids walk is our biggest fundraiser and allows us to bring #fostercare awareness to the broader community. Jacksonville was awesome for 2016…


4. Medtronic employees gave back mightily and stuffed 500 duffel bags with items such as soap, lotion, deodorant, toothbrush kits, etc. for the teens as well as toys for the little ones in foster care.


3. This wasn’t one moment but more like a movement! This year Duffels4Kids distributed duffels to Florida DCF investigators and juvenile court judges so they can have them on hand for immediate removals. Also foster youth graduating from high school received our duffels too!


2. It was an honor to celebrate Veterans Day with Memphis veterans & community members at the Hickory Hill Road Walmart. Oh, we received a community grant too!


1. Our best moments of the year were spent serving our youth! Our Celebrations4Kids aim to do just that: celebrate the kids. We finished the year with celebrations in Miami & Orlando and can’t wait to gear up for 2017.
