YWCA invites local businesses and community members to show their support for women experiencing gender-based violence by joining the YWCA Challenge for Mom, a fundraiser on from May 1 until Mother’s Day (May 8).

“The YWCA Challenge for Mom is an opportunity to engage with members of our community and ensure that there is widespread knowledge of the resources that continue to be available at the YWCA for women and their children, while also working together to raise funds for core shelter and support services,” said Ria Nicholson, YWCA.

Community members are encouraged to visit www.ywcapeterborough.org, set a fundraising goal, and invite family, friends and coworkers to make a donation online or support them in accomplishing a fundraising activity.

Participants who raise $250 or more will be entered in a draw to win one of three prizes, kindly donated by local businesses (details available online). (Read more…)
