Brooke’s Purses

Brooke’s Purses is an annual project that was started by one of our members in memory of her great-niece, Brooke, who struggled with drug addiction and homelessness.

We collect gently used purses, fill them with personal care items and distribute them to shelters in Manchester and Nashua. So far, over 400 women in our area have been helped by those purses.

Like many other group activities, this year’s assembly event has been put on hold due to concerns about spreading the COVID-19 virus. Please hold on to your gently used purses and any toiletry items that you have collected.
