Carry On Drive


Many guests arrive with their personal items in plastic garbage bags. Provide those in need with the opportunity to store their personal belongings in a secure bag. Your team can collect new or gently used duffle bags and backpacks for the guests of SVDP to carry on through life’s challenges. Each resident is given the opportunity to secure their items during their stay. Unfortunately, this is not a luxury that they have outside of our doors. With this donation your team can grant those in need peace of mind, knowing that their personal items are safe and secure.

Option 1

  • Please see Amazon wish list for sizing specifics, and or to buy directly.

Option 2

  • Suggested one-time donation of $2500, at $25 per backpack, would help over 100 guests secure their belongings.
