Since 2002, we have partnered with the Georgia Department of Human Services (DHS). We have collected and distributed over 70,000 age-appropriate bags to more than 14,000 foster children within Georgia’s foster care system. In October of 2020, Totes to Tots Inc. was established as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
Totes to Tots partners with the Georgia Department of Human Services (DHS) to distribute the bags in the counties in which they’re collected.
Georgia Cancer Specialists learned about the plight of Georgia’s foster children from the story of one of our own employees whose foster child arrived with all of his personal possessions placed in a garbage bag. His few clothes, toys, and toothbrush were just thrown together. As a mother, this employee wondered what kind of message that sent the child about his importance. This only emphasizes how de-valued and disposable the child felt. Her telling of this story, and the desire of many of our staff to participate in a community service project in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., was the start of Totes to Tots.
