There are a bounty of ways you can give and help folks around you that need a helping hand this holiday season. Tomorrow night at The Mahtay Cafe and Lounge they will be having their second annual “Pack a Purse” Event which is all about supporting Gillian’s Place (Gillian’s Place offers hope, safety, support and empowerment through a range of services and effective partnerships to end violence against women in niagara).


From 6:30-9:30 pm Tuesday night, group organizers at Mahtay will be accepting donations of purses filled with toiletries for women at Gillian’s Place.  Items needed include feminie hygiene proucts, soap, shampoo, brushes/combs, baby wipes, etc.  In exchange for your donation you will receive a thank you gift as well as a chance to win DoTerra prizing!  (See attached poster below for more details)
