Pack the Purse

Women United was blown away by the community’s generous response to Pack the Purse! United Way received 360 purses for the Women’s Job Seminars plus 6,900 tampons and almost 6,900 pads for Time of the Month Club. These items will make a big difference to the women who receive them.

Thank you to everyone who donated and to the people and companies who coordinated drives.

Applications for Project LEAD's fall session are due August 10! This seven-week training prepares community members for leadership roles on nonprofit boards and committees.
