Maud Ballington Booth was the embodiment of compassionate strength and courage. Together with her husband, she began Volunteers of America in 1896 and worked tirelessly to “reach and uplift all people.” Today, Volunteers of America is a premier non-profit human service organization that serves 6,000 men, women and children annually in Upstate New York.
The Purse with a Purpose line in the Abigail Riggs Collection is designed in honor of inspiring and empowering women pioneers. The newest release is this Mrs. Ballington Booth purse to honor Maud’s legacy and her dedication to inspiring change for those in need.
Proceeds from the Mrs. Ballington Booth purse will support Volunteers of America Upstate New York’s efforts to empower people in our community to rise out of poverty and reach their full potential.
