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 some personal and household items. To that end, 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. They also provide backpacks filled with books and stuffed animals for children. Volunteers pack an average of approximately 200 suitcases and over 100 backpacks and deliver them to 9 local shelters at the annual Packing and Delivery Day each October.
