Pack the Purse is a highly anticipated annual event hosted by Women United! Donations of new or gently used medium to large sized purses are requested to help the United Way of Greater Atlanta collect 300 purses with everyday care items that will benefit women in our community who do not have access to these essentials.

All proceeds of Pack the Purse will benefit those served by YouthSpark, Beloved Atlanta, Women’s Resource Center to End Domestic Violence, Crossroads, and other United Way partner agencies who are working are working to build a strong future for Greater Atlanta – a future where every individual and family in the community can thrive.
