The Bag Ladies of Lakewood Presbyterian Church in Jacksonville, Florida, began in January of 2008. Since then we have sewn, assembled, and delivered 540 Welcome Bags each year to Hubbard House, our local abuse shelter. These colorful drawstring bags, filled with comfort items and toys, are given to children who are being sheltered there with their mothers. It is a labor of love, and we encourage women across America to create Bag Lady groups to distribute Welcome Bags not only to children, but also to men and women who find refuge in shelters of all kinds in their own communities. These pages will tell you how. And to see a video of us in action, click here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5iKgIhV17xY&feature=context&context=C3e1ee56ADOEgsToPDskKrid0cZGUYxkuvSfthMPCz
