Launee Wolverton, a realtor at Silvercreek Realty Group[HB2], started the ‘Purses with a Purpose’ fundraiser in 2019 to support homeless and battered women by donating purses filled with products for everyday hygiene.
She started with Facebook posts, asking women to donate gently used products like purses, along with soaps, shampoo, feminine products, toothbrushes, toothpaste, scarves, etc. Donations came pouring in, she and her team now pack the purses and donate them to about ten shelters in the city, she receives at least one donation every day.
Apart from individuals, some of the valley’s charitable groups also donate; the Boise Diaper Bank donated many pallets of feminine products to the fundraiser.
Launee explains, "You know, honestly, I can’t say it enough; it blesses me to bless other women, I grew up poor, so I know what it’s like to not have those things, and I’m so grateful I can do it."
Every Purse Has a Purpose... Every Woman Has a Dream!
“Purses with a Purpose” donates purses stuffed with basic necessities for struggling women at Treasure Valley shelters.
Launee is enthusiastic about her mission, she invites people to donate a purse or items to be put in purses for the women in need.
Volunteers are welcome to aid in reaching and sharing the needs of our community in the Treasure Valley.
Purses with a Purpose Boise is a 501(c)(3) tax-exemption non-profit charitable organization.
