Giving back

My mission statement is to connect, work with and serve 2500 women by 2020.

“Fill the Purse with Purpose”

Annual gently used purse drive. Requesting donations and having the donor fill the purse with items that you would find in a lady’s purse.

They have been filled with everything from gift cards, bibles, winter gear, perfume, toiletries, make up and much more.

With the help of local girl scout troops, and other women we have been able to help nearly 100 women each year spanning over 5 local charities. Prudent Clarence, Carolyn’s Place, St. Vincent De Paul, Kelly’s Kids, Susan B. Anthony Project and Wellmore, with more to come.

[Note: video is from the annual meeting of the Connecticut Trail Lawyers Association.]

This drive continues to be successful because of people like you that donate
a “GENTLY Used Purse” filled with purposeful items:

  • Scarves
  • Gloves
  • Small notepads
  • Pens
  • Jewelry
  • Gift cards
  • Lip balm
  • Lotions
  • Tissues
  • Books
  • Nail polishes
  • Hard candy
  • Bibles
  • Spiritual book
  • Wallet

Finish it off with a motivational note from you to the recipient — with words of encouragement. Please leave them anonymous
