Purses for Mom 

Mothers were the focus of an event held this weekend in Bangor.It happened at Purse Hollywood in Bangor, it’s called “power of a purse.”It’s a national campaign event leading up to Mothers Day.Purses were collected that will be distributed to mothers in need in the area.In the last month, new and gently used purses have been stacked up and ready to go to eventually be delivered to women at Spruce Run and St. Andre’s Home in Bangor. “And so we thought instead of just handing over a check this would be a fun neat way to get something new or pretty, so we thought this would be a fun way to show them someone’s thinking of them on mother’s day,” Said the events Co-leader Elizabeth Bushnell.Donations will also be accepted all month long at Purse Hollywood and at the Grasshopper Shop in Bangor.
