"Handbags For Hope" A Success in Amarillo

A program to help local women who are victims of domestic violence has received overwhelming support of people in the Amarillo area.

Since the program kicked off in April, the Handbags For Hope program has received over 800 old purses and handbags to give to local women.

Once the purses are donated, volunteers stitch a domestic violence emergency number on the inside in case it is needed.

Some of the donated purses will be Mother's Day gifts for local women at Amarillo Family Support Services shelter this Sunday.
