The Rotary Club of Richmond Hill is collecting purses for the Fill A Purse For A Sister Campaign
Can you please help us?

Often women in distress arrive at a shelter with nothing. The purse brings comfort, hope and dignity to women and youth in crisis with the gift of purses filled with personal necessities.
How to get involved? Choose a beloved gently used purse, or purchase a new one. With love and thoughtfulness, fill the purse with items such as feminine hygiene products, tissues, shampoo, conditioner, face mask (not disposable), hand sanitizer, toothbrush, floss, hair brush, gloves, hat, scarf, lip balm, coffee shop gift card, notepad, pen, a whistle or flashlight.

Where do I drop off the purses? Rotary is collecting at two locations in Richmond Hill:
1. Dr. C.P. Giri - Dentist at 9791 Bayview Avenue, Richmond Hill 
2. Eggsmart - 155 East Beaver Creek Road, Richmond Hill
