Every year, children in foster care carry their belongings from home to home in trash bags. To help change this, Chartwells at Northern Kentucky University participated in the “Share the Love Bag Drive” through the DCCH Center for Children and Families in northern Kentucky. Chartwells’ goal for this drive was to collect enough suitcases – filled with necessities and goodies – to distribute to 150 area foster children.
Chartwells at NKU fulfilled this goal, thanks to an overwhelming response from NKU family, associates and staff. Donations included suitcases, duffle bags, blankets, notebooks, pencils and crayons. The DCCH Center associates said they were “amazed” by the multitude of donations received from NKU Dining. Chartwells thanks those associates who helped with these efforts and wishes the best for these children.
