Purses For Willow Domestic Violence Center

Gates Public Library will continue to host donation drives this year supporting a different organization each month. In honor of Women’s History Month, we will be working with Willow Domestic Violence Center to be the recipient for March’s community donation drive.

For the month of March, please consider donating new or gently used purses filled with toiletry and useful items you would have wished to receive had you been in need of support. Include a small note of encouragement to lift our community up! Filled purses can be brought to the Gates Public Library and placed in the donation box in the atrium of the library.
