FILL A PURSE FOR A SISTER CAMPAIGN

OCTOBER 1 TO DECEMBER 1

The Fill A Purse for a Sister campaign collects new or gently used purses filled with personal necessities to give to women going through a crisis. The purses bring comfort and support in a time of distress. 

Purses collected will be distributed to support organizations in and around St. Albert and handed to women accessing services.

Fill A Purse for a Sister was founded by Angel Friedman in 2015. Learn more >
