The Meadowlands Chamber’s Chamber’s Professional Women’s Initiative (PWI) organized a donation drive for Center for Hope and Safety at its May Monthly Networking Meeting, with members donating diapers & wipes, full sized toiletries, makeup, brushes, combs, hair ties, hair accessories and women’s summer pajamas to help the nonprofit organization serve its mission of providing for victims of domestic violence in Bergen County.
Donations from members included a large box of toothbrushes and toothpaste from Delta Dental, 80 mascara’s from ServPro and large boxes of diapers from Altigro.
The Chamber’s Professional Women’s Initiative (PWI) was formed to help steer annual programming geared toward enhance the working environment of women. The group also committed itself to philanthropic efforts that align with this mission. In May we celebrate Mother’s Day and with that in mind the PWI requested donation items from the membership to benefit Center for Hope and Safety.
