Pack A Purse Drive Community Collection Sites Needed



Become A Pack A Purse Drive™ Ambassador by hosting a community collection site!

2016 Pack A Purse™ Drive Goal: 1,000 purses

November 1, 2016 – December 5, 2016

  • Only new and gently used purses will be accepted.
  • New toiletries needed: toothbrush, toothpaste, mouthwash, deodorant, soap, lotion, and feminine hygiene products.  We will also accept: shampoo, lotion, lip balm, and hand sanitizer


Here are 5 easy steps to hosting a successful Pack A Purse™ Drive community collection site:

  1. Select appropriate containers for donations and an accessible collection location.
  2. Choose collection/drop-off dates and times.
  3. Publicize Pack A Purse™ — social media, canvas your neighborhood, post flyers at home, school, or work. Be sure to acknowledge your collaboration with JaMai and Packaged for Success.
  4. Sort through all donations at the conclusion of the drive — keep new and gently used purses; discard items that are not in good condition
  5. Coordinate pick up and/or delivery with Chief Visionary Officer, Nicki Sanders.


Other wasy to get involved with the 10th Annual Pack A Purse™ Holiday Drive:
• We are seeking several drop-off locations in the community for our Pack A Purse™ Drive. Churches, hair salons, barber shops, coffee shops, schools, community centers, and other local businesses.
• We are also in need of a central location for storing, sorting and packing donations. Volunteers welcomed!
• We are seeking a location where agency representatives can pick up donations be given specific “shopping” times so that youth can come and select their own items.
• We never want to make deliveries in black garbage bags so donations of large holiday shopping bags and other durable large bags are needed.
