Peters Resident Leads Holiday Tote Bag Drive

Monday is ‘Take Your Tote to Work Day.' Drop off a tote at the Coldwell Banker in Peters Township to support a great cause, an initiative part of the Pittsburgh Tote Bag Project.

The holidays are a time of giving, and Peters Township resident and real estate agent Julie Sasko-Bissell has joined a regional effort to encourage just that.

Sasko-Bissell recently volunteered with the Pittsburgh Tote Bag Project—an organization helping the hungry while having a positive impact on the environment.

She's leading a December drive, the Holiday Tote Drive Project, which runs through Dec. 18. As a drive organizer in the community, she’s doing everything to spread the word.

“I’ve used social media, put flyers in my kids’ cubbies at preschool, emailed organizations and businesses, as well as included my open houses in on the effort,” she said.

She said she’s seeing it take off—her dining room is stocked with totes and she said she’s not stopping there.

In partnership with Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank, the bags, once collected, are distributed to pantries and food distributions throughout the region.

How can you help? Before you leave for work Monday, grab a tote and take it with you—during lunch, or when you can, drop off the tote at the Peters Township office, located on 3244 Washington Road in McMurray.
