Description
We receive thousands of donations of new and gently used handbags and purses from the community. Volunteers will help us clean and sort the bags, affix a label with Texas Advocacy Project's domestic violence legal line to the inside of each, insert pamphlets containing lifesaving information, and then box them up. The Project will ship them to women's shelters and family crisis centers throughout Texas. The goal is to get the purses to the shelters in time for Mother's Day, when each child staying in the shelter can pick out a purse to give as a gift to their mom!

Volunteers are urgently needed for the final push to get these purses ready for gifting. This is a great opportunity for families, groups, and individuals. Hours are available most weekdays between 10am - 2pm, as well as some evenings and weekends.

Register: Select a shift or email us directly at vol@texasadvocacyproject.org with your preferred day and time.  We will get back to you asap to confirm.  Thanks!
