Here is a picture of some of the purses which were so graciously donated to the WOS Local 3657 Purse Drive. As you can see the response was overwhelming.
Since there are an overabundance of purses and personal hygiene items we will be able to “spread the wealth” as they say to a number of different organizations. Paulette Battisti has made contact with a young woman from New York City, who works directly with the hurricane victims in several area shelters. The purses will be drop shipped to a central location and hopefully the WOS will be making a road trip to visit the facilities.
Also, purses are being sent out to (2) local women’s shelters and a facility called the Center For Hope, who will give the purses out to the women who are signed up for their food pantry.
