Handbag auction to benefit older adults in need taking place April 28

Forsyth County Senior Services is seeking donations of gently used handbags, purses and wallets for their upcoming handbag auction that will benefit older adults in need. The auction will be held at Sexton Hall Enrichment Center on Saturday, April 28 from 1:30 to 3 p.m.

“With the ‘spring cleaning’ season upon us, this is a great opportunity for anyone to declutter their closet while also being a part of a great cause,” said Senior Services Director Ruthie Brew. 

Funds raised during the auction will help provide meals, transportation and life enrichment for residents through Senior Services programs such as Meals on Wheels, the Congregate Meal & Activity Program at Charles Place and Sexton Hall, and Respite Care.
