Mother's Day Purse Drive
April 13, 2022
The Matthew 25 Outreach Committee is happy to bring back our wonderful annual Mother’s Day Purse-giving project this year that benefits so many mothers who, unfortunately, miss out on their special day. Last year we had just over 130 wonderful purse gift bags and we want to top that! Please bring your gifts to the Cathedral on Sunday, May 1 for a special blessing of this ministry, or drop your gifts by the Cathedral office if you are unable to attend before May 1.
Who receives the purse gifts?
The purse gifts will be distributed to the children of Our House, Dorcas House and Arkansas Children’s Hospital so they have a special gift to present to their mothers on Mother’s Day.
You Can Help!
- Purchase a new or donate a very lightly used ladies’ purse.
- Fill it with some nice goodies for “Mom,” such as: lip gloss, hand lotion, hand sanitizer, perfume, scarf, small jewelry pieces, mirror, candy…use your imagination!
- Place your purse and goodies in a gift bag with decorative tissue, ribbon and a Happy Mother’s Day card.
- OR, if you’re not a shopper: A monetary gift is welcome (note for Purse Gifts). Send to Trinity Cathedral, 310 W. 17th Street, LR 72206; or, place in the offering, or give online.
