Our recipients are women and men-“our Sisters’ and Brothers’, that are struggling to rebuild or improve their lives. We strongly believe that the gift of a purses, filled with essentials, from a complete stranger can give these women and men the message of HOPE and that ‘SOMEONE CARES‘.
It is important to us that our donors know that we work with social agencies, and other not- for- profit organizations to distribute the purses. Our Volunteers sort and fill the purses with as many items as we have donated, and ensure that each purse is “safe” and that the contents are consistent.
We are proud to share we distributed 1295 purses in the 2022 campaign bringing our total collected to 6,938 purses!!
