BUZZWORTHY: Power of a Purse

In honor of Mother's Day (coming up May 9th) we want to introduce you to a fairly new chapter of a charity gaining a presence in Northwest Arkansas.        

Mothers & More is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of mothers through support, education and advocacy.  The charity is committed to creating a place for mothers to feel part of a large community of women who are experiencing challenges that all mothers face -- not only in raising children but also in fulfilling their sense of belonging and making them feel comfortable in being themselves. 

The Northwest Arkansas chapter of Mothers & More is participating in a national campaign (running from April 5th - April 30th) called Power of a Purse -- which is designed to raise awareness of mothers' economic issues through the act of collecting new or gently used purses for mothers and women in need. 

Purses will be given to several local organizations the weekend before Mother's Day (specifically the Women's Shelter and Peace at Home Shelter).  In addition to the purses, Mothers & More will gather donations from local businesses to put additional items into each donated purse. 

We are currently working to gather drop-off information for anyone looking to donate a purse.  In the meantime, email for more information.
