Jackie Bobcean founded Handbags of Hope in 2007. The donation program is in its third straight year. Hand Bags of Hope benefits women in shelters, purse snatching victims, and teen programs throughout the State of Michigan. "When women flee for the shelters, a lot of them leave their purses behind. We get letters of thanks from the shelters and the women themselves. One told us it was the first gift she had received in 15 years," Bobcean said. Handbags of Hope — Gifts of Beauty & Empowerment has provided women with a little bit of normalcy in abnormal situations for three years. A purse filled with girlie stuff can be just the right medicine to lift a woman's spirit on a difficult day.
We will be accepting donations of gently used handbags and fill items. The handbags can be filled with necessities to create a functional purse. The purses can be new or gently used, filled or unfilled. An example of fill items include: wallets, hairbrush, body lotion, memo pad, manicure set, toothbrush kit, and travel size toiletries, gloves, Pajama’s and socks.
The collected items will be distributed across the State, from Wayne to Petoskey. There are 18 shelters, 6 Teen programs and 5 Police agencies scheduled for delivery. As of 11/16/09 there have been a little more than 1000 purses received. The quota is 3000 filled purses.
