Pass the Purse
Pass the Purse - The Lady to Lady Project began in the fall of 2015 from the inspiration of Philicia, one of our amazing volunteers. Pass the Purse is a call to action. Imagine not having a ponytail holder for your hair, no toothbrush or toothpaste, no feminine hygiene products during your time of need, or going without tissue; wiping your tears on your sleeve.
Now, imagine the difference we can make providing homeless and underserved women in the Lowcountry with a purse filled with the "little things" so many take for granted.
Here is how we can help...
- Collect new and gently used purses (clean out your closet and encourage your friends, family, and coworkers to do the same).
- Stuff the purses with a "Lady Friendly" items.
- Deliver the purse(s) to Tricounty Family Ministries at 3349 Rivers Avenue or call the office to coordinate a pick up of your collection!
For those who would rather donate, you can sponsor a purse for only $12 (donate here). There are no limits to the number of purses you can sponsor!
Suggested items to include in a (new or gently uses) Purse to Pass include:
Nail file and clippers
Q-Tips or cotton balls
Maxipads / Tampons / Pantie liners
Hygiene wipes (diaper wipes)
Mini Hand Sanitizer
Hard candy or gum
Inspiration Books, gifts, or fun stuff.
Purses can be gently used but the contents inside MUST BE NEW please.
Please note- travel size items are okay. Buying in bulk and separating items into zip-lock bags is a great idea. This list serves as an idea, you can be creative and add the things that you personally enjoy as a lady. Every purse does not have to include every item on the list. Do what you can...EVERY purse has a purpose!!!
