More than 20 purses were collected by Heron Terrace team member Brianne Kimbro-McCloskey in support of the Fill a Purse for a Sister campaign.  

Heron Terrace team member Brianne Kimbro-McCloskey is being applauded as “amazing” for her dedication to helping women throughout the Windsor area during the holidays by collecting purses for Unifor Local 2458, which donates the items to women’s shelters and girls’ organizations.

“For the second year in a row, she has donated to our Unifor Local 2458 women’s committee Fill a Purse for a Sister (campaign),” Jennifer Cloutier, Unifor Local 2458 executive unit chair and Unifor women’s advocate explains.

This past holiday season, Brianne collected more than 20 gently used purses and new items to fill the purses with, Jennifer adds. “She has filled them with care and love.”

Brianne has participated in the Fill a Purse for a Sister campaign for the past two years. The purses she and others collect are then sent by Unifor Local 2458, the union representing Heron Terrace staff members, to the organizations. The purses are provided to those accessing services from the women’s shelters and girls’ organizations at Christmas.

“This is our third year organizing and distributing (the purses),” Jennifer says. “It has grown in a short time. Last year’s goal of 288 purses collected was surpassed by flying colours. I work with some pretty amazing compassionate and caring people.”

Fill a Purse for a Sister campaigns are held across Canada during the holiday season.
