Thanks to the generosity of QuikTrip and Raising Cane’s, 25 volunteers assembled 1,369 activity bags recently to distribute to F&CS Child Abuse and Trauma Services, CHBS and Women in Recovery/Women’s Justice Team clients.
“We are grateful for this wonderful donation from QuikTrip and its team members that have stepped up to help our Family & Children’s Services’ (F&CS) kids in four program areas who need immediate support,” said Tom Taylor, F&CS chief development officer. “Not only are we committed to providing services for children who are experiencing related anxiety, withdrawal and hardship during this pandemic, but because of the support from QuikTrip’s and Raising Canes, we were also able to provide them with an activity bag to relieve some stress.”

- 144 bags for children ages 0-1. They will receive cloth books, play mat, stacking cups and blocks.
- 217 bags for children ages 2-4. They will receive blocks, Paw Patrol puzzle, Mickey Mouse books, coloring book, crayons, sidewalk chalk and bubbles.
- 506 bags for children ages 5-11. They will receive crayons, card games, sidewalk chalk, activity book, paint suncatcher and bubbles.
- 441 bags for children ages 12-18. They will receive an adult coloring book, coloring pencils, markers, jump rope, activity game book and journal notebook.
