Phoenixville Purse Drive to Stop Human Trafficking ends March 8

Between now and March 8th, you can help rescued victims of sex slavery in the United States by donating purses in new or like-new condition to the Phoenixville Purse Drive.

Purse donation sites include:
Phoenixville Chamber of Commerce 171 Bridge St.; Citadel Credit Union, 558 Kimberton Rd. (Rural Rt113); Snyder Family Chiropractic, 1003A Egypt Rd.; Konell Insurance, 444 Valley Forge Rd.; Country Nails, 255 Schuylkill Rd.; The Bistro at Franklin Commons, 400 Franklin St.; and, in Eagleville, Minuteman Press, 2938 West Ridge Pike.

Collected purses in new or like-new condition will be donated to Change Purse, an organization raising awareness about human trafficking and investing in the lives of rescued women and children through purses at www.changepurse.org.

The Department of Justice estimates that nearly 300,000 children are forcibly prostituted in the United States at any given time.

Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultant Sylvia Dana Atkinson is coordinating this project as part the Global Month of Service by Mary Kay, Inc. in celebration of the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day.
