Students at College of the Ozarks got some real-life practice in social work this year. KSMU’s Jennifer Davidson has details.
24 suitcases, including at least one Hello Kitty suitcase, packed with hygiene items and toys, went to foster kids in Taney County who are hopping from home to home.
Six students and two C of O professors teamed up with Taney County to organize the project. The students and professors came up with the idea, and worked on it for most of the semester.
The suitcases were donated by college students, churches, and community groups, and they went to children ages seven to 13, according to a release from the college.
The essentials inside the suitcases were provided by the Board of the Taney County Child Welfare Advisory Committee.
