How you can help Georgia's foster children
Totes to Tots honors Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
A message from the Founder of Totes to Tots - Mrs. Barbara Palermo.
Georgia Cancer Specialists learned about the plight of Georgia’s foster children from the story of one of our employees whose foster child arrived with all of his personal possessions stuffed in a garbage bag. His few clothes, toys, toothbrush, were just thrown in together, and a couple of his toys were even broken. As a mother, she 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 non-profit organization.
Since 2002, we have partnered with the Georgia Division of Family & Children Services (DFCS). We have collected and distributed over 60,000 variety size bags to more than 14,000 foster children within Georgia's foster care system.
To provide each child in the Georgia foster care system, the dignity to keep and carry their possessions in a permanent mechanism during their stay within the system.
Totes to Tots Inc., is committed to provide every child in Georgia's foster care system a suitcase or backpack, of their very own.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions for Georgia's foster children. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
