Residents of Querencia at Barton Creek senior living community recently gathered for a good cause to show support for the “Handbags for Hope” campaign, which raises awareness about domestic violence. Local police officers made a presentation to those in attendance, providing information and statistics about domestic violence issues in Austin. Residents donated dozens of purses to the program that will then have emergency information unnoticeably stitched into the purse.
“This program has helped hundreds of women, who may have thought they didn’t have anyone to turn to during a time of need,” said Leslie Dominguez, director of sales and marketing at Querencia. “Querencia is happy to have had the opportunity to be a part of such a worthy cause.”
