12th Annual Pack A Purse™ Drive Thank You and 2018 Total



Thanks to the generosity and compassion of all the donors, sponsors, ambassadors and volunteers of our 12th Annual Pack A Purse™ Drive, we collected and distributed 972 purses filled with toiletries and 117 cosmetic bags and wallets to 22 youth serving organizations.

Our amazing team of volunteers sorted, filled, and packed hundreds of these purses at our annual Purse Packing Party on December 8th. 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!
