10th Annual Pack A Purse™ Drive Thank You and Total




 Thanks to the generosity and compassion of all the donors, sponsors, ambassadors and volunteers of our 10th Annual Pack A Purse™ Drive, we collected and distributed 1,183 purses with toiletries to 29 youth serving organizations. This includes the 897 purses our amazing team of volunteers sorted, filled, and packed at our Purse Packing Party on December 10th where we also collected 65 cosmetic bags. JaMai and I could not provide these care packages in purses to teen girls in foster homes, group homes, and homeless shelters without all of YOU.  We are eternally grateful!
