The Marshall County FRN has partnered with Noble Energy to organize a “Purse Project” that will benefit women and local organizations in Marshall County. The “Purse Project” campaign will include the collection and distribution of purses filled with personal hygiene and other useful items to be given to women who may be in need of such items. The filled purses will then be given to six local organizations in Marshall County. This project would not be possible without the generous sponsorship provided by Noble Energy and the contributions of their employees.
Noble Energy employees held a purse drive during the weeks of April 11th through the 25th and collected almost 160 purses
to be filled. On May 13th, Noble employees, along with FRN staff, will meet to assemble the purses and fill with them with small toiletries and household products. Following the assembly, the purses will be presented to the organizations, which include: CASA, Wellspring Pregnancy Center, Blue and Gold Christian Center, Moundsville Police Department, Feeding Body and Soul Soup Kitchen, and YWCA. The organizations will have an opportunity to share how they plan to use the purses or how the purses will be beneficial to their organization. In addition, Noble Energy will be awarding each organization with a monetary donation to support the work they do for Marshall County and its residents.
The Marshall County FRN is pleased to implement the “Purse Project” in conjunction with Noble Energy, and extends its gratitude to Noble Energy and its employees for their generosity and desire to give back to the communities they operate in. The “Purse Project” is a worthwhile initiative and will not only serve women of Marshall County, but also benefit local organizations who provide needed services to residents.
The Marshall County FRN is a catalyst for change, an organization that understands and is responsive to the needs and opportunities in the community. Partnering with community members and public and private organizations, the FRN develops innovative projects and provides needed resources for the area.
