Lydia totes and services are always free of charge to any woman anywhere who is currently undergoing treatment for any type of cancer. Totes come with the option of receiving ongoing support via encouraging cards, emails, or phone calls every month for one year. Each tote includes an inspirational journal, lotion, and other supportive items. In the front pocket is a card indicating the name of the volunteer seamstress as well as a response card where women can request prayer or the ongoing supportive services.
Requesters can ask for a tote with either Faith, Hope, or Love embroidered on the designer bag. When someone other than the recipient requests a tote, an extra card is included indicating who requested the bag and any desired message for the recipient. All information regarding the tote recipient is kept confidential.
Totes are delivered personally (not mailed) within the Augusta, GA area. If you are requesting a tote for yourself or someone who lives in the Augusta area, a Lydia volunteer will bring the tote directly to you or your loved one. You can also come by the office (M-F 9am-3pm at 1369 Interstate Parkway, Augusta) and select the tote you'd like for yourself or delivered locally or shipped worldwide for a woman coping with cancer.
Requesters are asked to pay shipping charges for recipients residing outside the local zip code areas. Please note: if you are a woman who lives outside the local area and cannot afford the shipping charge please call the agency with your request and Lydia will absorb the shipping charge: 706.736.5467 or toll free 877.573.4212.
