Most Needed Items: Underwear & Socks

Two of our most needed donated items are (new) underwear and socks - ages infant through adult.  

Imagine how many sizes of underwear there are?  

Underwear Drives are a great way to get diapers and underwear into the suitcases for children! If each person donates a package of his or her own size, we get a wide variety of sizes!

* Love on Wheels has been providing suitcases on wheels including, basic necessities like shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste & comfort items like blankets, socks & underwear since 2014.  We started out as a ministry of Bethlehem United Methodist Church in Franklin, TN & have grown to become a registered 501(C)(3) non-profit organization.  We have provided suitcases, "Care Bags", blankets & "Love Notes", to hundreds of children around many counties across middle Tennessee.  We are growing to serve foster children throughout Tennessee with an eye on growing our mission nationwide.  Love on Wheels also focuses on inspiring a dialogue with people in every community about our current foster care system in an effort to ultimately make some changes to better serve these children in need.  We hope you will join us in our mission to provide love to these children during this emotionally challenging and frightening change in their lives.  We ask you to donate, volunteer, and spread the word about Love on Wheels!
