In January 2013, Free The Girls partnered with Duneland Community Church in Chesterton, Indiana, to create an inventory sorting facility.
Moving our bra inventory operations from Colorado to Indiana made sense for a number of reasons. In terms of transportation, Chesterton is only 50 miles south of Chicago where all our overseas shipments originate with our shipping partner, LR International. And DCC has storage space and people power to handle the huge increase in bra donations we experienced in 2013.
Inventory operations are overseen by Greg Arthur, Pastor of DCC and vice president of FTG’s board of directors, and Pam Gumns, FTG Inventory Manager, Volunteer. Greg and Pam enthusiastically head up a crew of over 70 volunteers from the Chesterton area.
Every month, FTG receives hundreds of packages in Indiana from all over North America containing upwards of 10,000 bras! Every six weeks, FTG and DCC host a Packing Party where volunteers tackle the mountain of bra donations by sorting and packing bras in large, uniform shipping boxes suitable for shipment overseas.
Bra donations from bra drives, drop off locations, or private parties should be sent to us at this address:
