WGirls: Looking Forward…Giving Back/Meet the Need Organization

Click to enlarge

The WGirls Milwaukee Chapter is a part of a much larger picture.

WGirls was originally founded by a small group of professional women living in New York City. These women met every Wednesday (hence, the W) to discuss how they could donate their time, energy and talents to give back to underprivileged women and children throughout their community.

The WGirls Milwaukee Chapter started in October of 2009, and it’s been growing every since. I met two very bright women, Alexa and Rachael, and it was impossible not to share their excitement and enthusiasm when discussing what they do. To hear how they’re meeting the needs of The Family Life Center, Kathy’s House and beyond, then click the podcast below.

*In its third year, Hope for the Holidays is celebrating the season of giving and brightening the lives of children of The Family Life Center.

Hope for the Holidays takes place on Thursday, December 1st, from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Historic Pabst Brewery. To learn how you can donate to help the families and children of The Family Life Center, then visit WGirls.org.
