Luggage for Freedom is an initiative of NCJW Chicago North Shore Section. Its goal is to provide a sense of dignity to women who are staying at and transitioning out of domestic violence and homeless shelters, by giving them a suitcase packed with sheets, towels and toiletries. Luggage for Freedom also provides backpacks filled with books and stuffed animals for children. Our volunteers pack an average of 125 suitcases and over 150 backpacks and deliver them to 9 shelters in the Chicagoland area. Luggage for Freedom has an incredible ability to directly impact women and children in a positive way, at a time when they are most vulnerable.
