    Oopsie Bags                                  

    Oopsie Bags are reusable bags provided by the “Volusia County Oopsie Project” facebook group. It’s a group of women who want to make sure every girl has a backup pad at school for when their period starts unexpectedly or they forget supplies at home. We’ve all been there, we’ll be there for you. These bags are meant to be refilled when they get home from school and used again and again.


    Back in 2018 Amber Carman started the “Oopsie” Bag project with a goal of supplying Ipsy bags stuffed with feminine products to as many local schools as she could. Gina Elmazi saw what she was doing and decided to help. She asked her Facebook friends for ipsy bag donations. She asked her business clients to donate the menstrual products to fill them. She enlisted the help of friends to stuff the bags and distribute 40 at a time to all Volusia County Elementary, Middle and High schools.

    FOUR years and a pandemic later, we have met our goal and then some by distributing Oopsie bags to a lot of Volusia County schools, some more than once, distributing to some Flagler County schools, giving to Pace Girl-Outreach and a couple area Women’s shelters.
