LUBBOCK, Texas (NEWS RELEASE) – The following is a news release from Women’s Protective Services on Lubbock, Inc. and Lubbock Habitat for Humanity:
Please join us for a much-needed luggage and tote bag drive for Women’s Protective Services at the Lubbock Habitat ReStore on Saturday, July 20th from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm! Two non-profit organizations working and supporting each other for a common cause:
HELPING LUBBOCK CITIZENS —— STOP – SHOP – SUPPORT
The need for pre-owned or new luggage or tote bags is needed for those individuals and families who utilize Women’s Protective Services. Many of clients of WPS use trash bags or old grocery bags to carry what little belongings they do have. So many of us take a suitcase or tote bag for granted but to others – it is such a need.
Utilizing the Habitat for Humanity ReStore at 8004 Indiana Ave in the Melonie Square Shopping Center as the drop off location, allows the Lubbock community to visit the Habitat ReStore especially if they have not had a prior opportunity for shopping or as their next donation call!
Pre-owned tote bags, suitcases, backpacks – whatever the “CASE”, if there is LIFE left in it – It Can and Will Be Used!
