Support Jenna’s Blessing Bags & Save

Jenna’s Blessing Bags imageJenna’s Blessing Bags was started in memory of Jenna Burleigh, a western Massachusetts native. A victim of violence, Jenna had a kind heart and spent time collecting backpacks and life essentials to help the homeless in Philadelphia, where she attended college.

We are collecting items for Jenna’s Blessing Bags through Thursday, December 31. Help keep her compassionate spirit alive by continuing her mission here in western Massachusetts and northern Connecticut.

As an added incentive, if you bring a minimum of 10 items from the list below to either of our locations, we’ll give you 10% off your materials purchased* that day. All items collected will be added to Jenna’s Blessing Bags for distribution to our local homeless population.
