PBP Collection Boxes

We need your help! Do you belong to a local church, community organization, school or business that would be interested in partnering with DCS and Degage Ministries on our Purple Backpack Project? You can do this by hosting a Purple Backpack Project donation box.

Donation boxes will be delivered to you with a laminated list of items needed to fill our purple backpacks. The backpacks will include items designed to combat the wind and cold, and most importantly, to keep individuals dry. Some of the supplies included will be waterproof outerwear, mummy sleeping bags, hats, gloves, thermoses, and more. To maximize the effectiveness of our campaign, distribution of some items (hand and feet warmers, personal hygiene items, undergarments, instant coffee and soups) will be on an ongoing distribution schedule throughout the winter months.

If interested in gaining further details and specifics on how to help, please contact Wendy Botts at wendy@dirtcitysanctuary or by phone at 616-250-6423.
