Keremeos’ Ladies of the Royal Purple were able to put together 77 bags to donate this year, thanks to the support of the community.
Every year, the Ladies gather donations to assemble their Handbags of Hope for women in need in the community. This year, they put together 65 purses for women in need, and 12 bags for men. There were five more bags compared to 2020, with the Lower Similkameen Community Services Society handling the distribution.
The community provided donations of needed items, purses already filled and money to ensure that everyone got some warm clothing for the winter season.
In particular, the Ladies thanked the Keremeos Pharmasave for their donations of toiletries for the bags, as well as to Valley First and the Keremeos Information Centre for serving as drop-off sites and the Keremeos Buy-Low Foods.
