Fashion Show to Benefit Women's Career Clothing Closet

Neither snow nor double digit wind chills could keep the YWCA Fashion Show Committee from meeting to finalize the February 22 show plans.  The chilly night presented no problem as the team kept fashionably warm in colorful boas!  The Show will feature clothing from area stores, as well as our very own Women's Career Clothing Closet, along with a select group of vendors, tasty and fun bites from the YWCA kitchen, a demonstration on ways to accessorize, and opportunities to win auction items. Tickets are $20 and proceeds will support the Closet. So let's defy the weather, have some fun, and help some of our sisters!  Call the YWCA to reserve your seat today!

September is Umbrella Month!

The YWCA is collecting umbrellas to distribute to women seeking work.  On rainy days, it isn't unusual for me to see individuals in the downtown area battling the elements without the proper gear.  An umbrella is an inexpensive fix for those who don't want to arrive for work or an interview looking soggy.  If you can help, please drop off your donation at the YW's main office.  Thanks!

YWCA Pushing Forward

We feel the arms of our community, friends, colleagues, United Way of Greater Stark County, and Mid-Atlantic Region wrapping their arms around us offering their assistance and prayers; and we are grateful. The 3/28/12 early morning fire halted activities in the facility, but there has been no disruption to off-site services. Restoration teams are hard at work and we anticipate re-opening the facility by May 1st.

Thank you for your concern and support.
