Handbags of Hope
...it's time

To shop!!

But not for you...we need you to purchase a handbag and fill it with gifts of love. Together let's bless a sister out of her socks, let's give a women affected by domestic abuse and homelessness a spark of hope and love.

We are aiming for over 100 handbags to be donated full of gifts; we will give them to Hands of Hope and Baptist Care to donate to women in need this Christmas.  For more information on how to get involved please contact Nancy or Katrina.
