Donate your old purses, wallets

You could help a child this Christmas even with an empty purse.
The Salisbury Post is collecting gently worn or new purses, totes and wallets for its Helping Handbags fundraiser.
It works like this: The Post accepts used bags and wallets through Nov. 30. We have 35 already; photos are on the Helping Handbags Facebook page. Then there will be a handbag sale in the Post lobby on Dec. 5 and 6.
A raffle is for a 13-inch Fossil tote and a Key-per triple pouch is part of the project. The items are valued at $173. Tickets are three for $5 or an arm’s length for $10.
The drawing will be held after the sale.
All proceeds go to Christmas Happiness, a fund Salisbury Post readers have supported since 1952 to help the growing number of low-income families in Rowan.
Any donated items that might be too worn to sell or are left over will be donated to a local charity.
So bring your helping handbags to the Salisbury Post at 131 W. Innes St. weekdays between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. and make your deposit. You’ll be passing your bag on to someone else and raising money to make Christmas better for local children.
Questions? Call the Post’s Sharon Jackson at 704-797-4238 or email sjackson@salisburypost.com.
