The group is hosting its rescheduled fundraiser, Purses for a Purpose, this week.

The group is collecting purses which they will fill with supplies that you normally can’t find at shelters.

They will distribute those purses to area shelters.

You can donate purses and learn more about trafficking and the group’s work on Thursday at the 2nd annual Purses for a Purpose event.

Danielle John, a trafficking survivor, will share her story.
