The Soroptimist International of the Tri-Cities Pretty Bag Project has been the identifying project of the club since is formation in 2002. The bags include such necessities as shampoo, conditioner, soap, a brush, tooth brush, tooth paste, dental floss, razors and nail files among others.  The bags are given to domestic violence survivors at Fremont-based SAVE and throughout Alameda County. The club also donates a portion of the bags to local organizations that support survivors of human trafficking as well as those who are homeless. These bags give these women, who often have left everything behind, a way to feel better about themselves and improve their self esteem.

Soroptimist of the Tri-Cities is reaching out to our community for help. Local businesses can participate in the Soroptimist Pretty Bag Project by
1.) Hosting a Pretty Bag giving tree in your office or place of business
2.) Hosting a donation jar
3.) Sponsoring an item or number of bags

All donations are tax deductible and with your help, we can reach our goal of donating 300 bags to women in need this year. To get your office involved or make a donation, contact us at (510) 621-7482, email at or visit to
