Luggage Of Love

8th Annual - Date Coming!
Every October - December we activate! The 2022 official drop off/ collection date announced soon!

Luggage of Love is an annual third party event hosted by APEX CPAs & Consultants, Inc. to benefit CASA Kane County foster children! Foster children frequently have few belongings; just a couple of outfits, photographs, and a stuffed animal or toy. When they are moved between families, these children are often forced to carry their few keepsakes and belongings in plastic trash bags. Carrying their items in bags can be embarrassing and yet another reminder of how little they own.

Our Goal is $50,000

Our 8th annual Luggage of Love Campaign to benefit CASA Kane County is underway! Last year we raised more than $44,000 in cash, suitcases, gift cards and essential personal items for children in the foster care system. CASA Kane County advocates for the best interests of these children (ages 0-21) both in and out of court. This year we have set our goals higher than ever! 

We are looking to surpass last year’s total and raise $50,000 in monetary donations, new suitcases, gift cards and new essential personal items. The Luggage of Love lifetime contribution to CASA Kane County is more than $145,000!
