We provide suitcases to children entering the foster system.
Included in each suitcase is a care bag filled with brand new basic (life) necessities such as clothing, toiletries, and toys. Suitcases are available for children all ages and both sexes.
All of the items donated to Love on Wheels are stored our facility located behind Little House Animal Hospital - 1109 Battlewood St, Franklin, TN. The items are organized based on age and sex, which helps us assemble care bags more efficiently.
We are staffed to accept physical donations (items listed below). Please call 615-791-9148 to schedule a time to bring any (new/never used) items! We would love to add the items in the care bags and give you a tour of our beautiful facility!

Most Needed: 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!
