Team members for US Global Trade Services and LS3 in Memphis, TN chose the Memphis Child Advocacy Center for their Purple Tote Bag drive this year. Memphis Child Advocacy Center is an organization dedicated to helping children in the local area that have been victims of sexual or physical abuse. They want to also prevent children from becoming victims of abuse through their prevention, education, and intervention initiatives.
Our team knew that the Advocacy Center had a great need for teddy bears and books this year, so we concentrated our efforts on collecting as many bears as possible. US GTS/LS3 was able to collect 120 Purple Tote Bags full of items from the agency's wishlist, including over 50 teddy bears! The Purple Tote Bags were delivered on November 18th to the Child Advocacy Center in our own FedEx van!
