dignity bag
 n.— «The Love You packs program is intended to ease the moving of foster children, said Fowler, who explained that in the 1950s when a child moved between foster homes, all of their possessions were placed in garbage bags. “We aren’t trash, we’re children,” said Fowler of the need for what she refers to as “dignity bags.” She explained the process of removing a child from a home is very different from the child’s perspective.» —“More join ‘Love You’ packs campaign to help foster kids” by Jil Schult in Otsego County Gaylord Herald Time (Michigan) July 18, 2007.
