String Bag Project (SBP) pulls communities together one bag at a time. We do this by:
1) Providing the economically challenged members of our local communities with reusable string bags containing basic necessities such as toothbrushes, tooth paste, soap, shampoo, nail clippers, rain ponchos, razors, tissue, dental floss, and hand sanitizer. Children's bags contain child-appropriate items along with school supplies.
2) Working with and through local shelters and community outreach centers.
3) Working with fellow high school students to create, build and run local String Bag Project chapters.

String Bag Project
Over the past 2 years, we have provided 3000 string bags to homeless and in-need members of our South Florida community. We are currently sending bags to Haiti and the Bahamas for hurricane relief. SBP is planning a distribution of 1250 bags to children in Jamaica the end of 2016.
