Thank you Women's Initiative Volunteers!
Women's Initiative celebrates National Volunteer Week by announcing that our volunteers logged more hours in the first quarter of 2010 than in all of 2007! Women's Initiative volunteers have given more than 5,000 hours in 2010 so far, and we're not even halfway through the year. Last month alone, our volunteers logged nearly 1,800 hours in service to the thousands of local women entrepreneurs who participate in our microenterprise training, lending, and ongoing support services. Our growing network of volunteers really speaks to the relevancy and urgency of our mission in response to this recession. Are you looking for a way to make a difference in the lives of low-income women who are working hard to transform their lives, support their families, and revitalize our local economy?
