Giving Back – The Purse Project

Summit Martial Arts has teamed up with Smarty Skirts this holiday season for a special project.  SMA is proud to lend a helping hand for this wonderful organization.  Smarty Skirts offers free and low cost educational services to women.  They believe in empowering women through education and community support.  We are happy to continue our relationship with such an inspiring group of women.  When we heard about the Purse Project, we could not wait to get started.  Here are the details:

The Purse Project is a charitable campaign aimed at helping homeless women across the city of Calgary.  The Purse Project has been picked up in a number of cities across Canada.  With the help of social media and amazing volunteers, the Purse Project is set to be a major success story.

Our Summit Martial Arts family jumped on the opportunity to donate.  Our students and their families helped fill the boxes with much needed supplies and purses.

If you have any gently used purses, please consider donating them to this wonderful initiative.  YOU can make a difference in someone’s life. Donations are being accepted from November 14 through to December 6. There are a number of drop off locations though out the city.  Please see Smarty Skirts Facebook page for a location nearest you.  A BIG thank you to everyone who has made a donation.
