Members with donated purses
The Young Women’s League, Inc. provided much-needed resources to “women in need” in the Metropolitan DC area. A donation of 90 packed purses was made to the United Citizens Against Poverty  (UCAP).  

This past holiday season we aimed to pack a purse, and needed your help! We asked our friends in the community to donate a gently used purse that you were willing to part with and pack it with much-needed items such as:
  • Deodorant
  • Toothpaste
  • Toothbrush
  • Mouthwash
  • Comb
  • Brush
  • Shampoo
  • Conditioner
  • Personal hygiene items
  • Nail polish

YOUR support and contributions made a difference as always!  Thank you !!
