Undercover Angels delivered almost 500 duffel bags to ChildNet in February as part of their Duf-Fulls of Love, duffel bag drive for foster children.
When Undercover Angels’ CEO Ginger Gilley, met with Elizabeth Wynter, community relations director for ChildNet, the subject of duffel bags was front and center. On average, 100 children a month enter into the foster organizations is a continuous struggle. Oftentimes these children are uprooted under hasty circumstances, leaving them no choice but to use trash bags to transport their belongings.
“[A duffel bag] is something that lets them know they matter, that they’re not trash” explained Wynter.
Gilley and the board members of Undercover Angels rallied several local businesses to join forces for the cause, such as the Florida Panthers, Priority One Credit Union of Florida, Lincoln Financial Media and Army Navy Outdoors. Although the final tally of bags is still growing, as listeners and fans continue to call saying they are organizing drives at their office, church or school, Undercover Angels has already delivered almost 500 bags.
