Packed With Purpose - Getting Involved
How can I get involved?
It’s pretty simple actually. If you have a gently used bag that you’d like to donate, simply send the bag to the address listed below and we’ll take it from there. Once we receive the bag, we'll work with our network of partners to get the bags in the hands of people in need who can benefit from them.
Packed with Purpose
1409 Fairfield Rd S
Minnetonka, MN 55305
**Please include the name “Packed with Purpose” on either the shipping label or the shipping box so your donation can be processed appropriately when it arrives at our facility.
What type of bags can I donate?
Currently, we are accepting gently used luggage and duffel bags. We prefer that the items be lightweight, wheeled, and larger than a carry-on. Please ensure all zippers, wheels and handles are in working condition.
Can I pack my bag with supplies?
You bet! Currently, we are accepting supplies to ship to Haiti. Bags can be packed with necessary supplies that are in new, un-used condition, including: medical supplies (aspirin, ibuprofen & gauze pads), hygiene products (toothpaste, toothbrushes, bar soap & shampoo), school supplies (pencils, pens, crayons, notebooks & rulers) and more (garbage bags, flashlights & cloth diapers).
Where do my bags go?
Packed with Purpose works with a number of charitable organizations, including Healing Haiti, Goodwill & Seeds of Hope. We provide periodic updates on our blog and in our newsletter about our most recent donations and the individuals that will be receiving the bags. You can rest assured knowing that your gently used bag will end up in a new home, NOT in the local landfill.
Is my donation tax deductible?
Yes, all donations are going to tax deductible charities. Currently, we are working with Healing Haiti, Goodwill & Seeds of Hope.
