CWA District 4 Members Provide Aid to Survivors of Domestic Violence

CWA Local 4900 members aren’t just stylish…they’re stylish for a good cause. In an effort to support survivors of domestic violence, members donated purses filled with essential items for women in need.

The initiative was driven largely by CWA Local 4900 Division 3 Vice President Danielle Brewer-Collier and Secretary-Treasurer Yolanda Mason with over 70 members of Local 4900 helping to stuff purses with items including toothpaste, shampoo, toothbrushes, antiperspirants, and encouragement note cards from CWA members.

“We all need help at some point in our lives; we are all one,” said CWA Local 4900 member and Purses with Purpose Co-Captain Temeka Linton. “I enjoy knowing that my efforts help someone.”

“There are a lot of things tied into how a woman carries herself. I thought that providing the supplies and purses, things we sometimes take for granted, could mean that another woman gains dignity, pride and comfort,” said CWA Local 4900 member Rachelle Sudduth.
