ATLANTIC CITY — A resort nonprofit is asking for donations for homeless or underserved women in the city to give them a Mother’s Day to remember.
Princess Inc., a nonprofit that fosters mentoring, education, empowerment and community service for girls, announced its second Pack Your Purse community service event for May 11, according to a news release from the group.
“We’re just hoping that the women we want to serve get the information and come out,” said Indra Owens, one of the nonprofit’s co-founders. “I think there’s a misconception that there aren’t a lot of homeless women in the area, and that’s not the truth at all.”
Last year, the group gave away more than 1,300 handbags filled with women’s essentials in both the resort and Atlanta, according to the release.

Donations can include all sizes of gently used women’s clothing, plastic hangers and gently used purses filled with lotions, hand sanitizers, lip gloss, pocket tissues, sanitary supplies, travel toothbrushes and toothpastes.
On May 11, participants will be able to browse and shop boutiques set up at the All Wars Memorial Building, 1510 Adriatic Ave., at no expense to them.
After shopping, they can walk to Turning Point Day Center for the Homeless, 1717 Leeds Ave., for a shower and to get their nails polished, as well as participate in other programming, according to the release.
“We’re asking for folks to spread the word in the street to all the women who are displaced here,” Owens said.
Donations are due by April 30 and can be dropped off at Shopper Services at Tanger Outlets The Walk, Suite 278, 2014 Baltic Ave. For bulk donations, or to volunteer, email Owens at email@example.com.
