CBO Donates to the “Fill a Purse for a Sister” Campaign in Support of My Friend’s House

CBO’s Collingwood office initiated a ‘charity’ chocolate bar and chips station, strategically placed close to the coffee pot in the kitchen. For a dollar or two, employees satisfied their 3:00 o’clock craving while supporting a worthy cause. We snacked a lot, and in the process raised significant funds to donate to local charities.

One local non-profit that benefitted was the Fill a Purse for a Sister Campaign, an Ontario based initiative that provides purses filled with personal necessities to women’s shelters, social service agencies and crisis centres. The cause recognizes that many women who live in precarious housing situations flee their previous circumstances with nothing in hand, not even their purse. By providing stocked purses to these women, the campaign looks to restore feelings of dignity and security that this simple, yet essential, item can provide.
