Gift Bag Drive for Women in Shelters

  • Monday, February 01, 2016

  • Women Judges' Night
The AWL Community Outreach Committee is conducting a “Gift Bag” drive to benefit women at area shelters and organizations, where they are given to victims of domestic violence. These women and children often arrive at the shelters with little more than the clothes on their backs.   

AWL has held similar drives in the past and the items and received enthusiastic feedback. The bags were greatly appreciated by the recipients. The items the committee is looking for include:
  • Small toiletry products
  • Personal care items
  • Sample size lotions
  • Soaps
  • Shampoo and conditioner
  • Single pack tissues
  • Cosmetics
  • Sample perfumes
  • Journal size notebooks
  • Pens/pencils
  • Dollar store gift items
  • Candies or mints
  • Any other small items that a woman would find uplifting, in any quantities.
Please consider donating and/or conducting a drive within your firm or agency to benefit these women. Items can be dropped off on March 10th at Women Judges’ Night. If you have any questions, or are not attending the event but would still like to donate, contact Jill Kastner.
