13th Annual Pack A Purse™ Drive Thank You and 2019 Total

Facebooktwitterpinterestlinkedinmail

Thanks to the awesome generosity and compassion of all the donors, sponsors, ambassadors and volunteers of our 13th Annual Pack A Purse™ Drive, we collected and distributed 754 purses filled with toiletries and 79 cosmetic bags and wallets to 21 youth serving organizations.

Our amazing team of volunteers sorted, filled, and packed hundreds of these purses at our annual Purse Packing Party on December 7th. 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!
