THE PURSE PROJECT
Empowering women... with a Touch of Hope, and bit of style.
Our goal is to give Hope by providing a purse or reusable bag filled with essentials and love to those women, girls, and anyone who has bravely escaped abuse in search of a better way of life.
A Touch of Hope
When anyone leaves an abusive situation, often times they have to leave quickly, without their purse. To women, a purse is a must have -
"we carry everything with us." In most of these situations, the financial resources to replace a purse and to provide the necessities within are lost.
Our mission at A Touch of Hope is to give comfort in times of need with compassion, dignity, and even a little bit of style. By providing an "almost new" purse or reusable bag filled with all of the essentials, this not only meets their immediate needs, but also provides a glimmer of hope.
Things will get better.
WITHOUT YOUR HELP...
Without your help, this need cannot be met.
We are always looking for donations of new or gently used purses along with items to put into the purses.
Monetary donations are also critical to our upkeep.
For a list of suggested donation items download our Wish List to your phone.
For monetary donations please call (636) 283-8699.
Tax receipt will be given at time of donation.
