Handbags of Hope took place on October 8, 2016 at the Hope in Christ Community Church in Compton. This is an annual event that CWLC has participated in for the past three years. Each year, the effort centers around new or slightly used handbags being stuffed with personal care items like a toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, lotion, a comb/brush, feminine hygiene products and a $15 gift card to Target or Walgreens. The handbags were then given to domestic violence shelters around Los Angeles.
