AUGUSTA, Ga. (WJBF) — A local organization is looking to make sure women are prepared in spite of what their circumstances are.
It’s called “Purses Filled with Passion.” It’s a donation drive to ensure that each lady can walk away with a handbag and a little bit of hope.
Deborah Brooks told Good Morning Augusta Weekends anchor Shawn Cabbagestalk that she always wanted to reach those in need, especially those women needing to rebuild, possibly displaced due to extenuating circumstances, or just to let them know they are not forgotten. Instead of walking away with just a bag, the women will walk away with an undeniable sense of pride.
In addition to purses, Purses Filled with Passion is looking for the following donations:
toiletries, lip balm, lotion, shampoo, conditioner, large combs, brushes, toothpaste, (alcohol free) mouthwash, deodorant, personal hygiene products, hats, scarves, gloves, new or slightly used purses/handbags and don’t forget to drop a few lines of inspiration, a scripture, a poem, or just words of wisdom to the lady that picks your purse.
Brooks joined Shawn Saturday, November 30 to talk about the project.
