Whatcom Women’s Network (WWN) donated more than $2,500 to local nonprofit organizations during 2014.
“Whatcom Women’s Network’s mission includes a directive to support local charities,” said outgoing WWN Director Hilary Parker. “Our members really delight in being able to turn our membership dues into good works in the community.”
Most recently, WWN gave $500 each to the Bellingham Food Bank, the Whatcom Community Foundation, and Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Services, and $250 to the Assistance League of Bellingham. Other donations have been made over the course of the year to organizations including Work Opportunities and the Whatcom Dispute Resolution Center.
“We know we are making a good choice by donating to the Bellingham Food Bank,” said long-time WWN member, RE/MAX Realtor Julie Carpenter. “They can use our dollars to bulk-buy badly needed proteins, stretching our dollars further.”
WWN meetings take place weekly at noon at On Rice in Fairhaven. Visitors are welcome to attend, and should contact the director prior to their visit: firstname.lastname@example.org.
