Here’s another good reason to clean out your closet.

Brighton is collecting gently used handbags to help women in need. The goal of the company’s latest charitable initiative, the Handbag Trade-in, is to collect 10,000 handbags to be donated to charities that empower women and their families.

“The simple gift of a handbag can do so much to lift a woman's spirits and it will also help her to look professional when she is interviewing for a much-needed job,” said Brighton’s owner and founder Jerry Kohl.

The initiative continues through July 26. And if you’re in the market for a new handbag, just bring in a gently used bag and receive $25 to $50 off a brand new Brighton bag. Any brand handbag can be donated.

A Brighton Collectibles store is in Penn Square Mall in Oklahoma City. To find other participating stores, go to brighton.com.
