In 2014, Jim and Jessie Chakires envisioned a world where every child entering foster care would feel loved and supported from the very first day. This vision sowed the seeds for Luggage of Love, a charity devoted to providing children with gift-packed suitcases as they navigate through the pivotal transition into foster care.
Over the years, the journey has been both heartwarming and transformative. We’ve seen firsthand the power of a community united by compassion, with each suitcase serving as a tangible expression of love and care. These aren’t just items; they are symbols of hope, dignity, and support that accompany children as they step into a new chapter of their lives.
We invite you to become a part of Luggage of Love’s story. Whether through donations, or spreading the word, your involvement makes a pivotal difference. Together, let’s continue providing love and support encased in each suitcase, assuring every child entering foster care that they are never alone.
CASA Kane County is a Guardian ad Litem, nonprofit volunteer organization that advocates for the best interests of children in abuse, neglect and private guardianship cases within the Juvenile Court system. We believe all children in the foster care system will have a safe, nurturing and permanent home where they can thrive with the support and involvement of their community.
