From 3 to 7 p.m. on Oct. 23, new or gently used purses can be dropped off curbside at 7 West Bistro Grille at 7 West Chesapeake Ave. in Towson, according to a Baltimore County news release. The commission is hoping to sell a truck full of purses collected there at events for The Samaritan Women, a Christian ministry. Funds raised will support human trafficking victims.
Additionally, 15 percent of eat-in dinner receipts at 7 West that evening will be donated to the organization as part of the commission's Dinner for a Cause, the release reads.
Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz, State's Attorney Scott Shellenberger and Baltimore County Police Chief Jim Johnson are scheduled to attend the event.
