Purses needed for “AdoptAn Angel” fundraiser
Tyler County Booster - October 2009
The sponsors of the “Adopt an Angel” Project are asking Tyler County businesses, civic clubs, offices, church groups, schools, and individuals to donate new (or gently used) filled purses. The purses may contain items from your business, gift certificates, or themed items. “The purses may be filled with any items that a lady would love to have. You might fill a ‘movie purse’ complete with a movie, drinks, candy and popcorn. What lady wouldn’t love to receive a purse with jewelry, a visit to the hair salon, or boutique or restaurants gift certificates?” said Kathy Harris of the Tyler County Child Welfare Board. “The donated purses will be auctioned during a “Tea and Purse Auction” in November. The money raised will go towards the 2009 “Adopt an Angel” Christmas Project.” The Tyler County Child Welfare Board sponsors the “Adopt an Angel” Project each Christmas to make sure that the children in the county receive Christmas gifts. Purses for the auction will be collected the first of November. For more information please call Kathy Harris at 283-2503 or Leann Monk at 283-2734.
