host a glimmer drive

A "Glimmer Drive" is the collection of new (or like-new) gifts for underserved women and teenage girls. A Glimmer Drive is a fun way to celebrate the Holidays, Mother's Day, Graduation, and Birthdays with your company, friends and family.

Pick a date, time, and location for your Glimmer Drive. You can host one at your home, your place of work, a community center, place of worship, or any place that is convenient. Invite friends, colleagues and family to participate. Using social media is an easy way to broadcast your message!
