Girls’s Vitality Community of West Virginia (WEN WV) introduced the third yr of the Purses for Energy program in West Virginia.
Final yr, WEN WV donated over 100 purses to Hope Inc., Phoenix Home, Sojourner’s (YWCA Shelter) and United Approach of Monongalia and Preston Counties, and United Approach of Marion County, amongst others. These donations assist help ladies and youngsters coming into shelters in West Virginia after crimes of home or sexual violence, in addition to different organizations supporting underrepresented populations.
In honor of Home Violence Consciousness month this October, WEN WV will as soon as once more be gathering purses and private gadgets for victims of home abuse as they make their journey in direction of a life freed from violence.
People might help by donating new or gently used purses, unused private hygiene gadgets (shampoos, lotion, toothpaste, cleaning soap), cosmetics (make-up, fragrance, face cream, nail polish), present playing cards (gasoline, meals, cellphone), or gloves and socks. No merchandise is just too small to assist a household or particular person in want. Packed purses will probably be donated to native shelters in early December.
Donations may be dropped off at Diversified Vitality, 414 Summers St., Charleston; Babst Calland, 300 Summers St., Charleston; Antero Assets, 535 White Oaks, Bridgeport; Steptoe & Johnson, 1000 Swiss Pine Approach, Suite 200, Morgantown; and Ascent Consulting & Engineering, 1700 Anmore Street, Bridgeport.
