The Uplifting Drive is here! From September 1st to October 31th, we will be collecting bras, feminine hygiene items, purses and other items for women in need.
In collaboration with Pattys Beauty Academy and other community members, we will collect and distributes donations of new and gently used bras, and individually sealed tampons and maxi pads to women and girls. Whether they are homeless, in transitional housing, or fleeing domestic violence, women and girls should never have to compromise on dignity.
Women and girls who find themselves homeless shouldn’t have to worry about finding bras, much less proper menstrual products.
Yet they wear the same bra for years, potentially causing health problems, and each month have to make a choice between paying for meals or buying a box of tampons.
Every woman should have the ability to maintain her dignity! The Uplifting Drive goal- to restore dignity and self-respect to women in need.
The items will be sorted and handed out between the first and second week of October.

Every year, we collect bras and personal hygiene items for women who are experiencing homelessness, or are living in shelters.
Every year we close off this drive by hosting an Uplifting Party!
This year the party will take place on
October 13, 2019
Once the drive concludes we get together to sort and pack them, and get them ready to hit the street!
You can help us by collecting gently used bras or by donating directly on our website!
