The following would be an easy project for your club to support and may well have synergies with a project of your own club.  The attached picture and the text below explains the request and could easily fit into your next club Bulletin.
The Rotary Club Manukau Sunrise Inc are looking for spare handbags, ones that are still in good condition, but you don’t want or use anymore.
The club will then use these handbags, by filling them with personal items & make them into a much needed care package & deliver to the Woman’s Refuge. Some of the woman arriving to these centres, arrive with nothing, as have run away from harm. This will give them a little bit of hope, showing there are people out in the world that are wanting to help, even in this little way.
If clubs could collect these over the next few weeks, & give to their Assistant Governor, they can drop at the next Management meeting, where PDG Leanne Jaggs can pick up & get to her club. If a lot, the club can organize to come & pick them up; call Leanne or email
This project is suitable for anyone who would like to support Women's Refuge in this way ... gather a bunch of suitable handbags from among your friends and network and email Leanne.
