Well, women in Rochester are using their old purses to help those in need.
This morning Mayo Clinic employees held a Desserts and a Purse drive to raise money for the Women's Shelter in Rochester. They received more than 400 purses that will now be sold to raise money.
Tammy Danielson: It has been great. It started at 10:00. We had a lot of people here at 8:00 wanting to buy them. We couldn't turn away anybody. We wanted to make sure the money started going to to the shelter early today. This is the first year for the drive, but organizers say they hope to make it an annual one. Looks like a lot of fun.
