There's always something exciting in the works when the Junior League is involved!
FINAL Backpack Community Donation Drive 2021 (4).png

Beginning October 28, 2021 the Junior League of Hamilton-Burlington, Inc. is spearheading a backpack drive to support survivors of human trafficking, some of whom have been held in captivity for years and may not have not had anything of their own while being trafficked.  

Donation boxes will be located throughout the Hamilton-Burlington community to collect items such as new pajamas, underwear, yoga pants and top, and hygiene products.  These items will be placed in backpacks, and then distributed by the Hamilton Anti-Human Trafficking Coalition.

Donation box locations will be posted soon.


Many thanks to Bullivant Health + Safety for their support and generous donation of 50 backpacks.
