Mother's Day Purse Project

We had a wonderful time stuffing Mother’s Day Purses for the

Women’s Hope Center. We had 7 PV Juniors get together on

Saturday May 1st. The number of items to put in the purses was

over whelming and the stuffing happens like a well-oiled

assembly line. We all enjoyed the time together after not seeing

each other for so long due to the pandemic. 54 purses were filled

and then delivered to the Hope Center on Monday May 3rd. The

amount of donations equaled $1094.00, and the volunteer hours

were 88 hours. What a great job ladies!
