LO­CALS are en­cour­aged to donate a back­pack or hand­bag filled with san­i­tary prod­ucts and toi­letries to help a woman in need this Christ­mas.

Share the Dig­nity’s It’s in the Bag ap­peal aims to gift bags of items such as san­i­tary prod­ucts, sham­poo and con­di­tioner, tooth­brushes, tooth­paste, soap and de­odor­ant to women and teenagers ex­pe­ri­enc­ing home­less­ness or do­mes­tic vi­o­lence.
