Superheroes Save Lives

We recently received a donation of backpacks from Foster Love Project, one of our partners in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. These backpacks are given to the kids in our shelters and the youth in the community that need it the most. They are filled with clothes, blankets, school supplies, and other necessary items for them to succeed.

Just the other day, a mother of two came through our doors needing assistance with supplies for her children. One child was 2 years old and the other was 6 years old. We were able to give them both backpacks, and when the 6 year old received his, he was over joyed. The boy was handed a superhero bag and he looked at our staff and said "You just saved my life!"

It is amazing to see the impact one item can have on someone, especially a child. We are blessed to be able to provide this excitement to those in our community. YSS has so much gratitude for our partners who help make this possible. They are the true superheroes that save the lives of the members in the community.
