Fill a Purse for a Sister Campaign (Info and Drop-off Locations)

October 26, 2018

BIG NEWS! 🎉 Donations are now being accepted for the Fill a Purse For a Sister Campaign in St. Albert! This campaign directly benefits women in the St. Albert area accessing social support services in our city through organizations like the Food Bank or SAIF. How does it work? From Nov. 1st-Dec. 1st fill up a new or gently used purse with purse essentials (hair brush, lip balm, gloves, notepad etc. must be new!) and drop off the purse at one of the listed drop-off locations. From there, your purse will be distributed to social service organizations in our city and picked up by those in need. The holiday season is coming up quickly so we’re hoping to start collecting/distributing purses as soon as possible! Share this campaign anywhere you’re able to! Thanks #StAlbert!
