Texas Advocacy Project has a great outreach campaign called Handbags for Hope, started by a former victim of domestic violence.
We receive thousands of donations of new and gently used handbags and purses from the community. Volunteers are needed to help us clean and sort the bags, affix a label with Texas Advocacy Project's domestic violence legal line to the inside of each, insert pamphlets containing lifesaving information, and box them up. The goal is to ship the purses to the shelters and crisis centers in time for Mother's Day, when each child staying in the shelter can pick out a purse to give to their mom.
Because we are expecting several thousand donations, one person can’t do it all, so we truly need your help. This is a great opportunity for families, groups, and individuals.
We are currently scheduling volunteers for the Handbags for Hope Campaign weekedays from April 20-May 1. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more details and to sign up!
