During the July 13th community outreach event Idaho REALTORS® was introduced to Launee Wolverton - a volunteer at the Community Warehouse who also started her own fundraising program in 2019. "Purses with a Purpose Boise", is a program founded Launee, which also occupies warehouse space at the Astego Community Warehouse. Launee is a REALTOR® with Silvercreek Realty, and this program aims to fill donated purses with everyday hygiene products which are then given to women in need throughout the community.
We want to recognize and celebrate the incredible community support that this member provides, and help the "Purses with a Purpose" program receive the support that they require. They're in constant need of gently used purses, personal hygiene items such as soap, shampoo, toothbrushes, and toothpaste, as well as feminine products. The purses also often include small comforts like scarves, hats, gloves, and even food gift cards.
Your contributions make a significant difference and are lovingly packed into purses once a month and distributed to crisis centers and shelters throughout the Treasure Valley. We commend Launee for her incredible work, and hope all Idaho REALTORS® take time to learn more about Purses with a Purpose and provide any support that they can for the program.
