Providing security and comfort to a child in crisis...
As Mom to a special needs adult, Sherri has been advocating for children for quite some time. She met Debbie while attending a Network Barrow Meeting. Her business offers Administrative expertise to other small businesses and AB needed a website. Two years later, whatever Ms. Debbie needs...Sherri tries to provide! Sherri and her family now live in Helen, GA but she is still doing what she can to help AB!
Joe played a vital role at Adventure Bags. Sadly, he passed away in 2018 and will be missed forever! There was nothing Joe wouldn't do for AB and his absence has left an enormous hole in all our hearts. Thank you, Joe! You will be missed forever!
The Adventure Bags Team

​Debbie has been many things in her lifetime but Adventure Bags is her pride and joy. Founded by her daughter, she works tirelessly everyday to make everything work. From writing grant requests to packing bags to picking up donations to finding ways to pay the bills...Debbie is amazing! Without her...AB would still be a dream and thanks to all the volunteers she finds, AB would never be able to serve so many.

Eric works for United Maintenance and has been with AB since the very beginning. Well, of course, since his wife, Tracy, is the Founder of AB! Tracy must remain in the background as she works with the Department of Family & Children's Services in Georgia.Either way, no matter how busy Eric is, he is always at the ready to do whatever Debbie needs done!  Eric and Tracy adopted Alec, who was in foster care, in 2017 making this family of three a family of four! Big brother Cole is such a big help around AB too!
