ILYA Calling for Used Suitcases and other Travel Bags

Moving out of your foster home into your first apartment can be a daunting experience for a young girl person who has just aged out of foster care. And there is something a bit demeaning if all your belongings are tossed into a black trash bag.

One of the non-profit agencies that ILYA (Independent Living for Young Adults) works with has asked if we could provide some used suitcases, large backpacks or duffel bags in good condition to make for a more dignified transition for these young adults to their first homes.

Check out your closets. Do you have some suitcases, duffel bags or large backpacks that you longer need? Bring them to the ILYA table in the parish hall following the service on February 18th.

Questions? Not able to bring your items to church? Contact Barbara Crowell at or (302) 235-1609
