The Ottawa County 58th District Court staff donated 81 backpacks filled with necessities (socks, pajamas, toothbrushes…) and other important items (toys, coloring books, crayons, puzzles…) to Hope Pkgs. Hope Pkgs is a local nonprofit that provides “first night bags” for children entering foster care. Many kids enter a foster family’s home with nothing but the clothing on their backs. The filled backpacks provide some comfort and hope for children of all ages during the transition. Let’s applaud these employees for their generosity and demonstration of The Ottawa Way.
