String Bag Project (SBP): Pulling communities together one bag at a time.
We do this by:
- Providing the economically challenged members of our local communities with string bags containing basic personal necessities such as toothbrushes, tooth paste, soap, shampoo, nail clippers, ponchos, hand sanitizer, razors, dental floss, tissues etc. For children, the bags contain child-approrpiate contents along with school supplies.
- Working with and through local shelters and outreach centers.
- Working with fellow high school students to create, build and run local String Bag Project chapters.
Think Big - Act Local
Our vision is to create a strong and enduring charity to support our local community AND to create a simple, replicable, model that can be mastered by high school students across South Florida, and ultimately across the United States.
Our goal is to create a win-win-win for students, community outreach centers and the economically challenged. The wins are many, but a few are:
For Students: The opportunity to learn how to build and run something that will enhance the local community and allow students to gain perspective by working one-on-one with shelters, and the people they serve.
For Local Community Outreach Centers: Additional basic personal necessities that the center may not be able to provide on an individual basis. The centers are also able to form stronger ties with local high school students.
For The Economically Challenged: A personal string bag filled with daily necessities.
For Local Communities: Deeper shared compassion.
