We were excited to honor Hollie with the Woman of Worth (WOW) award at the YWRC Gala in April.
"Hollie has a way of making everyone feel safe and included. She listens and shares her experiences/advice with everyone and truly cares about her peers."   
Did you know that employers often provide a matching gift program?
Many companies not only encourage their employees to give to and volunteer time with nonprofits in their communities, but will also match those efforts with dollars and support directly from the corporation.
Check with your supervisor or employer's human resources team to see if you can double your financial donation, or if those volunteer hours can be converted into a YWRC donation.
