Amazing Spaces Storage Centers, which operates five self-storage facilities in Houston, is supporting the Montgomery County Women’s Center (MCWC), a nonprofit that provides support and services to women affected by domestic violence. Two Amazing Spaces facilities will act as off drop-off sites for donations of new and gently used purses for MCWC’s Feb. 23 fundraiser, “Open Your Purse for Change.” Donations can be made at 18250 I-45 S. in Shenandoah, Texas, and 32620 F.M. 2978 in Magnolia, Texas.
All proceeds from the fundraiser will support MCWC services, including a 24-hour crisis hotline, advocacy, counseling, legal services, emergency shelter, transitional housing and community outreach, according to a press release.
“Giving back to our communities is one of the foundational pillars of our corporate mission and operating vision. We're always looking for new ways to help our community,” said Kathy Tautenhahn, who co-founded Amazing Spaces in 1998 with her husband, Scott Tautenhahn.
Now in its fifth year, “Open Your Purse for Change” was created by Ally Seder, who serves as co-chair with Shirelle Chimenti and Terry Larson. This year’s luncheon will be held at the Woodlands Country Club’s Legacy Ballroom, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tickets are $150 per person, with table sponsorships also available.
“We're so excited to be able to help this wonderful organization and make it easier for people to give back to those in need,” said Angela Vaughn, team development manager for Amazing Spaces. “We feel fortunate to operate within such amazing communities, and believe it is our duty to give back as much as we can.”
