Columbia Adoption Project

iBelong Backpacks

Columbia Adoption Project is working with Great Circle, Missouri Children’s Division, Coyote Hill and Rainbow House to support foster children in Boone County. Foster children often bring little to nothing when they are placed in a foster home. To help with this need the iBelong Backpacks were created. iBelong Backpacks are filled with items that are useful and comforting for the children, are are given to them when they are placed in a new home.

Your help is needed! Please choose an age group, purchase the items below for either a boy or girl, and contact Columbia Adoption Project at comoadoption@gmail.com to arrange for your donation to be picked up. CAP will fill a backpack or laundry basket with your donation.
