    Our ALECPTA is working with Together We Rise and the campaign "Sweet Cases." When foster children are moved into a new home they are provided with two trash bags. We are raising money to help provide these children with a duffel bag and some basic necessities. Help us provide some comfort to these children. ...Because a child's belongings are never trash.


    Please feel free to share the link with friends and family.
