Women depend everyday on our purses. Running a “small world” from it. We ask women to donate the gently used purses they no longer use. Each bag is filled with 10 essential items. Hairbrush, manicure set, lip balm, memo pad, tissues, wallet and travel sz. toiletries. Many women fill their purse before donating it , adding a personal note. We rely 90% on donations of purses, wallets and filler items to operate. We’re 100 % volunteer operated, no one is paid a salary. We give 3,000 filled purses a year to 28 shelters, 7 Teen Programs and various groups. It’s amazing how a handbag can be so empowering. Written in a letter” each time I reach in my purse I know there’s a little love on the bottom “
