Campus teams up with 'Purses for Preemies' to hold event
Penn State Lehigh Valley has teamed up with The Promenade Shops at Saucon Valley as a host of the March of Dimes "Purses for Preemies" events in April. Between now and April 9, people can donate new or gently used handbags at Bellini, GailGray, or Sage, located at The Promenade Shops, and receive a "special offers" sheet for savings at select Promenade stores. Then, on Saturday, April 10 from 2-5 p.m., Penn State Lehigh Valley will host a Purse Exchange at the campus in Center Valley, located near the Promenade Shops.
During the Purse Exchange, all of the collected handbag donations will be available for a $5 per purse donation to the March of Dimes. Participants can win prizes, receive Promenade specials, and learn how Purses for Preemies helps benefit premature babies and their families.
