Below, please find the latest 914Cares initiatives that are in progress and need community support.

Program Overview

914Cares Clothing+ provides each recipient with a unique Bag of Love containing a week’s worth of clothing packed specifically for them.

About our Bags of Love:

  • Each bag contains new underwear and socks and a pair of new or like new sneakers.
  • In the winter we include coats, boots, hats and gloves.
  • Every Bag of Love contains appropriate bonus items (books, toys, hygiene products, period products, etc.).

Our goal is for the Bags of Love to represent more than just clothing. Our hope is that they boost the confidence and self-esteem of the recipient and give them the confidence to tackle each and every day with excitement and determination.
