United Way launches GRACES

Thursday, March 24, 2005

In an effort to engage and involve women in the work of the United Way, GRACES (Giving Responsibly, Advocating for the Community and Excelling in Service) has been launched to harness the power of women as effective philanthropists to change lives in Southeast Missouri through the United Way.

Through GRACES, United Way reaches out to women for campaign support and provides them with information on community issues and recognition for the impact they have on economic and quality of life issues in Southeast Missouri.

Research indicates that women have footholds in contrasting worlds of the rich and poor. GRACES is working to bring the two worlds together and empower all women.

GRACES recently held a luncheon including two guest speakers, Tim Gould of New Vision Counseling and Denise Wimp of First Call for Help, at Gatherings Cafe in the Marquette Tower.

To get involved with GRACES, contact the United Way of Southeast Missouri at 334-9634.
