Bag of Prevention

An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure

Become a Northeast Indiana Positive Resource Connection Prevention Ambassador and help us end new cases of HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis and STIs. Bags of Prevention help support PRC clients who use our Gregory L. Manifold food pantry, and high-risk individuals within our Street Outreach program. With just one bag, you can make a huge difference in protecting your community.

How It Works

You can become a Prevention Ambassador in just three steps!

1. Start with an empty Bag of Prevention

  • Stop by our office to collect an empty bag to fill and return later.
  • Or give us a call and we’ll bring a stash of bags to your organization to share with your team.
  • No bag, no problem! We accept Bag of Prevention donations with or without one of our reusable orange totes.

2. Fill ‘er up!

  • Gather your donations of food, clothing, toiletries and utensils inside your Bag of Prevention – check out our list of accepted items.
  • Mix and match or donate a bunch of one thing.
  • Fill the bag to the top, fill it halfway, or donate one item. Everything helps! If one orange tote isn’t enough, use extra paper or plastic bags or boxes to accommodate overflow.
  • Please make sure food items are not expired and unopened in original packaging.
  • Second-hand clothing and utensils are more than welcome. We ask that they are clean and in good condition.

3. Bring your filled Bag of Prevention back to us
