Today, Ellen invited Rob and Reece Scheer to share their beautiful story. At the young age of 10, Rob lost both of his parents and entered the foster care system. As a senior in high school, Rob became homeless. Today, Rob is married to Reece and together they have adopted four kids. After witnessing how foster kids were showing up to homes with nothing other than a trash bag filled with their belongings, Rob decided to start a nonprofit called “Comfort Cases.”
Their nonprofit is completely community-based and provides foster kids with a backpack filled with necessary supplies for entering a foster home. Some items include a fresh set of pajamas, a new toothbrush and soap. Find out more information about Comfort Cases here and you can help make a difference and check out their GoFundMe page, here!
