Happy New Year!


Major Donation

We are excited to announce our largest donation to date! Over 10,000 feminine hygiene products & approximately 400 Bras were donated to Goodie Girl Bags by Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated who celebrated 110 years of service during its National Founders’ Day Commemoration in DC this past Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend. We greatly appreciate the opportunity to partner during this historic weekend dedicated to “Service to all mankind.” This large blessing is a great way to kick-off the New Year as we strive to help more women in need!

We would like to give a special thanks to Chairman, Lavdena Orr, Co-Chairman, Janice Ferbee, the Community Impact Sub-Committee and 2018 National Founders' Day participants. Please find a few photos below.


In loving memory


Last month, our founder received a generous donation in loving memory of her 22 year old nephew Tyree Freeland who loss his life in a tragic motorcycle accident in December 2017. He was serving in the Navy at Norfolk Naval and full of life. The love and kindness that is spread through Goodie Girl Bags non-profit is such a blessing and she is motivated to do more in Tyree's honor!
