The Purple Purse Campaign was a Great Success!!!

The Purple Purse is a campaign to educate the public about the need to end domestic violence that was developed and sponsored by the Allstate Foundation.

Our staff participated in the video used locally to spread the word about “The Purple Purse”.  Our YWCA was one of 14 locations across the country chosen to ‘pass the purse’ to raise funds to help end domestic violence.     Together  with our community we  helped “pass the purse” 3,124 times – more than ANY participating community in the country – including New York City and LA !   

Our local video is now on the national YWCA website if you haven't seen it yet, take a look!
