Staring today Handbags for Hope is teaming up with the Travis County Sheriff's Office. Staring today threw March 31st you can donate new or either gently used purses. To help survivors of domestic violence.
Here’s how the program works for the women receiving a bag: children staying in shelters across the state will pick out a donated purse to gift to their moms on Mother’s Day. Tucked away inside each purse will be a chance for a new life – each one will be fitted with a tag that has Texas Advocacy Project's life-saving, toll-free legal domestic violence hotline number and pamphlets detailing steps to get and stay safe. While the annual drive is centered on a spring collection, the Project fills shelter’s requests to have purses on hand throughout the year.
