11th Annual Pack A Purse™ Drive Thank You and Grand Total



Thanks to the generosity and compassion of all the donors, sponsors, ambassadors and volunteers of our 11th Annual Pack A Purse™ Drive, we collected and distributed 1,051 purses with toiletries and 58 cosmetic bags and wallets. to 24 youth serving organizations. Our amazing team of volunteers sorted, filled, and packed hundreds of these purses at our Purse Packing Party on December 16th. We could not provide these special holiday care packages in purses to teen girls in foster homes, group homes, and homeless shelters without all of YOU.  We can never truly express the depth of our gratitude. THANK YOU!
