Handbags that Help is a local women’s giving circle that makes a big impact. Women can join the giving circle by donating $500 annually, either individually, or by splitting the amount between 2 to 5 women. All members then have a vote in which local non-profit projects receive grants from the funds. This spring, Handbags that Help awarded $43,600 to five local nonprofits. City Mission received $6,739 to support their program for families. The Findlay Digital Academy, an at-risk high school academy, received $18,191 to support an additional academic coach/life mentor. Hope House received $5,616 for a transportation fund for individuals/families in need of reliable transportation for work. Habitat for Humanity received $5,054 for their home repair program and Jacobs Primary School received $8,000 for intensive parent and teacher training.
HTH is currently accepting memberships for the 2019-2020 year.
