On Thursday, June 20, the Southern California Chapter presented a check to For Goodness Cakes, an organization that “matches volunteers to make and hand-deliver birthday cakes to foster children and at-risk youth on their special day.” The PLUS Foundation grant for $2,500 will help this organization continue bringing light into children’s lives. The Chapter also collected socks & razors for Lava Mae, an organization that supports homeless individuals in California. They will be assembling hygiene kits withe donations later this month.
Thank you to the Chapter and to the PLUS Foundation for supporting these great organizations!
On Wednesday, June 26, members of the Midwest Chapter volunteered to help plant flowers and landscape for Thresholds, an organization that transforms the lives of individuals suffering from mental health issues by offering housing, employment, access to medical care and other supportive services. The PLUS Foundation awarded a $6,000 grant to Thresholds to help them continue their impactful and important work.
Thank you to the PLUS Foundation, the Chapter, and to the volunteers who came out to support this great cause!
This past Thursday, June 20, was the Women’s Leadership Network event in Hartford. Over 65 attendees were able to hear from Susan Dobscha, Professor of Marketing at Bentley University. She spoke on her journey through higher education in the traditionally conservative world of business scholarship. Afterwards, attendees enjoyed drinks and hors d’oeuvres while networking with colleagues.
Enjoy the photos from this event and thank you to the sponsors who make this and other Women’s Leadership Network events possible!
