Duffle Bag Project
Your help is needed to make sure a teen has a sensible means to transport their belongings. Your donation of a new duffle bag will ease a child's transition from emergency housing to a long-term home. Make a donation or lead a collection of brand-new, high-quality overnight duffle bags. Expandable, collapsible duffle bags work best, because they are stackable and can be easily stored until needed.
