When a child goes into an emergency foster home in Sonoma County they are given a blue duffle bag with the basic things they will need in their first days in their new home. This blue bag is the child's to keep and helps make the transition to their new home a little easier. The bags include several changes of clothing, pajamas, diapers/underwear, a book, a toy, a stuffed animal, toiletries and a special hand-made quilt. Each bag, including its contents, costs $125.
