Our friend, Heather Lojeski, appeared on the CBS 58 News at 4 p.m. Wednesday to call attention to the work her Faith, Hope & Love group does for children who have been removed from their homes.
FHL provides bags for these kids so they feel less alone and so they have something a little more substantial than a garbage bag in which to put their belongings. Lojeski’s group is also working with the Racine Coalition Against Human Trafficking to provide bags to victims who are rescued from human trafficking situations.
Each bag costs about $70 to put together – for both the bag itself and the items inside – and Lojeski appeared on the CBS 58 news to talk about both the FHL mission and her upcoming Bats for Kids fundraiser.
Faith, Hope & Love serves the entire Racine County community so children on the west end in Rochester and kids in the City of Racine – along with human trafficking victims – are all receiving a bag to help comfort them during a time in their lives when everything else in their lives feels so up in the air.
