I am off to drop off purses for the Purse Project I saw in the OTTAWA CITIZEN. Today is the last day for drop off for this specific purse project, but there are many out there. Find one in your community to which you can donate. It is a wonderful Christmastime idea.
Like most women, I have lots of purses hanging out in my closet, many of which I have barely used. The idea is to fill a gently used purse with personal items for women living in shelters or on the streets. There are many things you can fill the purses with:
- feminine products
- disposable razors
Find unused products in your home or purchase some to fill the purses with. Many drug stores have a travel section with miniature sizes of the products listed above. Gift cards are another great idea to add to the purses.
I have come up with six packed purses, ready for drop off here in Ottawa. There are lots of drop off locations listed in the article above, including many Shoppers Drug Marts and most Ottawa Police Stations.
