May 2018: Celebrate Mothers
Women United® is celebrating mothers for the month of May by hosting a Community Baby Shower collection drive. Our newly released ALICE Report identifies single women with children as the most likely to struggle financially. We support these women, we are dedicated to them, and we want to empower them.
To participate, you can host a collection drive at your office, with your friends, or design a creative way to involve people around you. To sign up to host a drive or donate to the drive, go to communitybabyshower2018.eventbrite.com. You can also download a flyer by clicking here.
On June 21st, the global United Way Day of Action, we will host a Community Baby Shower to distribute the items. More details to come.
