Through its “Luggage with Love: Helping Kids Move with Dignity” project, the Jefferson Leadership Institute is collecting donations of new or gently used backpacks or duffle bags for children at the Children’s Home of Jefferson County.

Drop-off locations include Humes Realty & Appraisal Services, 168 N. Main St., Black River; Fairgrounds YMCA, 585 Rand Drive; Aubertine & Currier, 522 Bradley St. and the Watertown Daily Times, 260 Washington St.

The JLI said it is collecting luggage because foster care children often carry belongings in trash bags or grocery sacks when moving between families.

For more information on the initiative, call 773-5947.
