Purse Project Niagara aims to help 1,100 women

The push is on to fill purses and help women in need.

During the month of October, The Purse Project Niagara will be collecting new and gently used purses to fill with necessities and goodies for women in crisis.

Organizer Sarah Boville tells CKTB's Tim Denis this year they are hoping to put together 1,100 purses.

New and gently used purses can be dropped off at several locations throughout the region.

Examples of needed products can be found below:
