Backpack Campaign

Our annual Backpack campaign begins in the Christmas season, from early November until late December.

At Open Door we use backpacks of personal hygiene products and emergency clothing to let women know that we are available to them with no strings attached when they are released from jail. Along with donations from Murphy’s Pharmacies, your donation will purchase the backpacks as well as feminine hygiene products, socks, underwear, face cloths and towels.

We are living in difficult times and it’s even more difficult for vulnerable women. If you donate to the Christmas Backpack Campaign you will help someone have a fresh start upon release from incarceration.

Please support our Christmas Backpack campaign so we can continue to make a difference.

“At the time of my release, Open Door gave me an awesome backpack filled with much needed toiletries. This came in very handy as I had nothing when I left jail but the clothes on my back!”
