This organization supports hundreds of local at-risk youth with quality, safe, positive after school programming. The Club’s mission is to inspire and enable all young people to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.
We had a fantastic meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 10 at the Cricket Club, in downtown Battle Creek. We had over 11 women who wanted to share with us information about organizations that are improving the life conditions of women, girls, children and families here in Battle Creek. We heard about 3 wonderful presentations last Tuesday – Girls on the Run, Community Healthcare Connections and Boys & Girls Club of Battle Creek. All were wonderful presentations followed by great questions. We selected the Boys & Girls Club of Battle Creek as our next organization for our collective giving. Please make your checks out to Boys & Girls Club of Battle Creek and mail to Donna Lartigue.
For those members who have not been able to come to a meeting, I encourage you to do so when you have an opportunity. We have had an amazing year and have had the opportunity and privilege to give to wonderful organizations who are changing lives in our community!
I truly believe that we enrich our lives when we give to others. I believe that Women of Impact can be a call for action to women in our community to get involved, to join hands and hearts in collaboration with each other and to share and give what we can to help strengthen and improve lives in our community.
Many thanks to you all and have a wonderful and joyous Christmas season!
