A local women’s giving circle is giving back to the community.
Handbags that Help is a local group that donates every dollar of their $500 memberships to the community through a grant. This year, the circle had 76 memberships and chose to donate their $38,000 to the Literacy Coalition of Hancock County to enroll 1,000 preschoolers in the Dolly Parton Imagination Library program.
In the last eight years, Handbags that Help has generated $336,100 to give to 18 local non-profit organizations: Hancock County ADAHMS Board, Arts Partnership of Hancock County, Hancock Center for Safe and Healthy Children, Habitat for Humanity, Camp Fire, Open Arms Domestic Violence and Rape Crisis Services, Hancock Christian Clearing House, Caughman Health Center, Findlay Hope House for the Homeless, Findlay YMCA, Family Resource Center, Cancer Patient Services, American Red Cross of Hancock County, Owens Community College Foundation, Read for L.I.F.E., Hancock County Saves, Century Health and the Literacy Coalition of Hancock County.
