Nothing is more important than the health and well-being of our members, our employees, and the communities we serve. To that end, we have made the decision to shift our Circle of Women event on April 29 from an in-person program to a virtual day of giving event: Connecting Our Circles.
As the world adapts to social distancing, we are redefining what it means to connect with others. A virtual day of giving offers us a new opportunity to showcase the many ways that YWCA plays a critical role in the well-being of our community, and to create meaningful engagement through technology.
Support from our beloved YWCA community has never been more important. Emergency, unrestricted dollars will be vital to the health of our organization and our ability to respond quickly as things progress.
Date: Wednesday, April 29, 2020
Time: 8:00 am – 8:00 pm
Location: Virtual Event
