Recipients

Our recipients are women that are struggling to rebuild or improve their lives. We strongly believe that a gift from a complete stranger can give these women the message that someone cares.

It is important to us that our donors know that we work with social agencies, churches, and charitable organizations that we have confidence in and know that they will distribute the purses to those who need the message of HOPE.

We have developed rapport with many of these agencies and are often led to other agencies that work so hard to improve the lives of so many. Many share feedback from the recipients that the gift of a purse truly does represent HOPE and are always amazed that someone out there CARES.

We are proud to share that in 2018 we distributed 855 Purses through these agencies.
