Women Giving Back

GivingTuesdayNow

Thank you!

Thank you to our $20K matching sponsor Heritage Contracting and to all that helped us raise an incredible $67,776 on GivingTuesdayNow which just happened to land on Cinco de Mayo.

With the hard loss due to the cancellation of the Cinco de Mayo Fundraiser and our increased operating expenses, the money raised will help continue to feed those facing food insecurity.
