I saw a flyer at my hair salon, JCola (a sponsor!) in November 2008 and thought what a great idea to gather purses and fill them for women’s' shelters. Not knowing exactly what to expect when I got there, I brought my purses and at the Elks Club in Mt. Clemens the place was decked out for the holidays, items to buy, great items for raffles and a full buffet meal! The place was packed, full of excitement and positive energy. Jackie, Debi, and Lisa are wonder-women! It’s incredible to fathom all that they do. Handbags of Hope has worked tirelessly from its inception to bring forth the goal of reaching women and teens in need. With each meeting with Jackie she seems to bring a new goal to reach out to more women in more creative ways. If ever a grass-root organization deserves support, its Handbags of Hope!
