Help mothers keep their babies safe and healthy!
Pack the Purse is an inaugural community-wide event powered by United Way's Women United to raise awareness and essential resources for new and expectant mothers.
Packed purses will be distributed to local organizations serving expectant mothers and mothers of young children. Civic and corporate groups across the region are invited to participate by hosting donation drives for gently-used handbags and joining together November 14 for a packing event to fill bags with early care items.
Items such as wipes, toiletries, and books will be available (thanks to our generous sponsors!) to be packed in each donated purses. Packed purses will be distributed to Renaissance West Community Initiative , Safe Alliance, Center of Hope, and Florence Crittenton, among others.
