In honor of International Women’s Day on March 8, Purses Full of Hope is teaming up with Avenue Kitchen in Glen Mills to celebrate women and offer hope to women in need.

On Friday, Purses Full of Hope will be collecting gently used purses filled with toiletries and a personal message of hope to be delivered to women at local shelters. The collection will be held from 2-5 PM at Avenue Kitchen, located at 509 Wilmington Pike in Glen Mills.

A complimentary specialty mimosa will be given to each person who donates a purse.

Purses Full of Hope is a local collaboration of passionate women who strive to give love and support to women seeking safety and shelter by delivering purses filled with toiletries and a personal message of hope to local shelters. The women they reach have suffered from domestic violence, homelessness, poverty, and other difficult circumstances.

This year’s theme for International Women’s Day is “Balance for Better,” with a focus on a continuous collective action to create a better world.

“International Women’s Day is the perfect day to both celebrate women and help and empower women in need,” said Kyra Miller, Co-Founder and President of Purses Full of Hope. “The women who receive our donations often flee their homes with little to no belongings and are not only in need of various personal hygiene products, but of something that can empower them and remind them of their resilience when they arrive at a shelter.”

Suggested items include shampoo, conditioner, body wash, perfume, tampons, pads, body lotion, feminine wipes, makeup, nail polish, chapstick, a first-aid kit, pencils and pens, an adult coloring book, an inspirational book, and a journal. The purse must also include a handwritten note to the woman who will receive the donation. This note is important, as it gives the woman receiving the purse love, guidance, and a little hope.

Please fill the bags will full-sized essential items. Please no empty purses.
