Summary:  Luggage for Freedom’s goal is to provide a sense of dignity to women who are transitioning out of shelters by giving them a suitcase packed with new personal and household items.

Details: Luggage for Freedom provides gently used luggage packed with new towels, new sheets, and new toiletries to women leaving local domestic violence shelters to start their lives anew. We also provide backpacks filled with books and stuffed animals for children. We pack approximately 200 suitcases and 100 backpacks.  They are delivered to 9 local shelters the same day. 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.
