TPL Backpack Header

Once rescued from the darkness of sex trafficking, each girl will be brought to The Porch Light safe home for a 9-12 month period, depending on her individual and specific needs. Upon her arrival, each precious child will receive a pre-packed backpack, providing her with clean, personal items.

Will you host a backpack drive for girls who will be rescued and restored through The Porch Light?

What goes inside each backpack:

  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Body wash
  • Lotion
  • Deodorant
  • Razor
  • Tampons and pads
  • Toothbrush & holder
  • Toothpaste
  • Hair brush or comb
  • Elastic hair bands
  • Lip balm (Chapstick)
  • Wash cloth
  • Towel
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Hard candies and gum
  • Tissue
  • Small notebook or Journal
  • Pen
  • Socks
  • Small blanket

For the children’s bags, possibly add a coloring book, crayons, stuffed animal, drawing pad and small toys. (Please indicate it is a child’s backpack on the tag*)

*Please deliver packed backpacks to any Florida Baptist Children’s Homes campus with a ministry tag for The Porch Light. To download this tag, click here:
