Every year Love Our Kids hosts The Christmas Comfort Kit Drive in December. A major part of these kits are the backpacks that hold all the items. We need new backpacks for babies, preschool, elementary and teen boys and girls so we can assemble these kits for hundreds of kids in foster care throughout our county and surrounding areas. These backpacks will be used to hold comforting items like a flashlight, blanket, water bottle and more. If you are interested in participating, please come by and drop off a new backpack to our Love Our Kids table located at 909 14th Street in Modesto from 9-12:00 on October 9th.

Love Modesto October 9th begins at 8:00 am online at for our Virtual Rally. We will all meet here BEFORE GOING TO YOUR PROJECT LOCATION at 9:00 am.
When you arrive at your project location make sure to check in with you project leader. You will need to receive instructions from them on the specifics of your project. 
Stanislaus County Public Health encourages volunteers to take appropriate safety precautions that include wearing face coverings, hand washing, social distancing, and staying home if you or someone in your household is sick.
Thank you for your willingness to "Love Modesto"! If you have any questions, please email
