Those three children found wandering on Highway 82 Saturday night have now slipped away from a foster home.
The father of the children, all under the age of five, was charged with reckless conduct after they were found.
They were put in foster care and then slipped away but were found four hours later.
The Lily Pad Center in Albany is working to make the transition easier for these three children and many more headed to foster care.
The children are often forced to carry their clothes in garbage bags.
The Lily Pad Center has partnered with Dougherty CASA, in hopes of making these transitions for foster children a little more pleasant.
They are collecting new or gently used luggage for kids to transport their personal belongings when moving from home to home.
"They realized the great need that when children are moving from house to house and using these big trash bags to put their belongings in, its sad for them and you know they break, get tears, and they rip. So we decided to start this and it was a perfect time because we want to do this in honor of Janaysia," says Caitlyn Cooper, Chief Development Officer for Lilly Pad Center.
Each suitcase will be gender neutral housing toiletries, a teddy bear, and a coloring book to make the kids feel more comfortable.
If you are interested in donating luggage, you can drop it off at the Lilly Pad office or they will arrange to have it picked up by calling 229-435-0074.
