Their early efforts were focused on helping in the local community, reaching and assisting women, children, and their families in need. For 15 years, Giving Hope, Women's Giving Circle has been accomplishing that objective and continues to develop women's philanthropy and meet needs through fundraising and grant making.
 
Gather to celebrate 15 years of Giving Hope!
The event will include:
-Gift Gathering for the Bottomless Toy Chest
-short business meeting
-pinning ceremony for members
