Omaha woman who packs duffel bags for foster children wins award
OMAHA, Neb. (FOX42KPTM) —
"This is the sweet case," said April Sevilla who showed FOX42 News reporter Steve Saunders a blue duffel bag and the stuff animal, blanket and other things that go inside.
These duffel bags end up in the hands of children in the metro entering foster care.
Sevilla says children in this situation typically get trash bags to hold their belongings.
"Just really broke my heart, and I just wanted to make a small difference in their lives and let them know that people care about them and what happens to them," said Sevilla.
Fundraising for "Sweet Cases for Sweet Faces" started off as a small bake sale and grew into one really big car show.
"We were able to raise enough money for 180 bags that all went to project harmony," Sevilla said.
