Fairfield Harbour Partners with the New Bern Women’s Club to Collect Purses for a Purpose

Local Boating and Golf Community Participates in Purse Drive Through May 23 to Aid Domestic Violence Victims

New Bern, NC, May 22, 2014 --(PR.com)-- Fairfield Harbour, a residential boating and golf community located 15 minutes from historic New Bern, has announced that it will partner with the New Bern Women’s Club to collect purses and personal items for area women who are victims of domestic violence. Purses can be dropped off through Friday, May 23 in the Fairfield Harbour POA office, located at 902 Coral Reef Drive.

The New Bern Women’s Club is hosting a purse drive because many victims of domestic violence are forced to leave their homes without essential personal items. Donated purses can range in size and may contain any personal items that these victims may need, such as toothbrushes, toothpaste or deodorant.

“We are extremely proud to help the New Bern Women’s Club this year in their effort to collect purses and personal items for women in need,” said Mystre’ Van Horn, on-site community manager of Fairfield Harbour. “Domestic violence is an all-too-real issue that affects women across the nation and locally. Fairfield Harbour is happy to contribute and support this great cause by collecting purses.”

“Helping others has always been important to Fairfield Harbour community,” said Larry Knapp, president of the Fairfield Harbour board of directors. “We are committed to our neighbors and are proud to give back by helping the New Bern Women’s Club in their purse drive. My wife and our board vice president for finance are both members of the Women’s Club and we encourage everyone to participate in this noble cause.”
