Local charity, the Purses of Promise Foundation, announces their first donation to the Rose Brooks Center.
Tuesday, January 13th, 2009, at 3:00 p.m.-- A dream that started six months ago will be realized as the foundation’s first donation is made to the Rose Brooks Center in Kansas City, MO.
Purses of Promise is a non-profit foundation dedicated to brightening the lives of domestic abuse victims in the Kansas City area. They collect gently-used or new handbags, fill them with necessary items and simple pleasures and distribute them to women in domestic abuse shelters. Each gift symbolizes the promise of a new beginning and the hope of a brighter tomorrow.
Three metro women have teamed up to benefit victims of domestic violence. Melanie Chezem, Michelle Begemann, and Brooke Chiaverini are thrilled to celebrate the first of what they hope will be many donations to Kansas City area shelters.
