Spread the Word! Let's RePURSE It and give hope and love one bag at a time. With the New Year underway and spring cleaning right around the corner, Save the Date for 20 Feb 2020. It's time to host our 3rd Annual RePURSE IT: Initiative Purse & Bag Drive. From 4:30pm-7:30pm at DK Effect for our RePURSE IT: Bag Packing Social! Come together for fun fellowship and fostering community engagement while dropping off and assembling our bags of hope and love for the community! What a great way to give back and it is simple, easy, and FREE. Just see what extra toiletries, snacks, purses and bags you may have and share the LOVE! The RePURSE IT: A Community Initiative is starting off to a great start! Help us reach our goal of 600 filled bags of hope to donate to local homeless, teen, and local shelters in Dayton and the surrounding areas. If you can’t make it on the 20th, no problem! We are collecting and picking up donations from now until Feb. 19th 2020. You are welcome to drop off you donated purses, bags, toiletries, and snack donations to one of our drop off collection sites: Fifth Street Brew Pub, The Barrel House, Warped Wing Brewing Company, and Twist Cupcakery.
Our RePURSE IT: A Community Initiative Purse and Bag Drives have collected and filled over 1000 purses and bags of HOPE and LOVE for so many men, woman, and children in need in the Dayton Community and surrounding areas to date! This year will be dividing these bags of hope amongst some of the non-profit organizations in Dayton and the surrounding areas such as the Daybreak Dayton, House of Bread, St. Vincent DePaul, and other organizations who assist and support those in need in the Dayton area. This initiative has been a HUGE success because of YOU and our community organizations.
Who Can Help? YOU, ME, ANYONE! ???? Near or Far. Young or Old. Make it a family project, a team building event at work or church, and/or a guys or girls night in! You can collect or donate items, fill bags and drop them off at our packing social, drop them off at one of our drop off locations, or call for us to pick them up! If you would like to contribute to the community initiative, we welcome all donations and assistance.
