Ways to support
Thank you for your interest in supporting this ministry. There are multiple ways that you can choose to help. Here are some of the needs that we have:
Since the bag is the focus of our ministry, we are always looking for help with sewing bags. We also make pillowcases and personal-size tissue covers. See below for the requirements of the bags, and check out our video library for helpful diy videos on making bags, pillowcases and tissue holders.
Each bag includes a journal for the girls to use with their therapist. Composition books are covered in beautiful scrapbook paper and decorated with stickers, sayings or just matching paper! We have composition books that have been donated if you need. Please be sure to stay away from anything with sharp edges, things referencing "family" or anything you would deem inappropriate. Uplifting quotes and bible quotes are great.
We fill bags as the need arises at the New Life Center. When the call comes in, the emails go out with requests for the needed supplies. You can check out the list of items we put into the bags on the BAGS page. You can be on the look out for sales and deals and be prepared when the call comes.
If you are wanting to order items from Amazon Prime, you may ship them directly to:
Dawn Pratt c/o Bags of Hope, 412 Mesa Grande Drive, Leander, TX 78641
There are times when the supply donations aren't enough, and we need to purchase the remaining needed items. 100% of your tax-deductible donation goes to the girls, nothing skimmed off for expenses.
Please make all donations payable to Upbring (Memo Bags of Hope) and forward to the following address:
P.O. Box 140767
Austin, Texas, 78714-9919
