Join the Redskins Women's Club as we volunteer our time to help Women Giving Back (WGB) for a morning of doing just that! WOW will be hosting a private day of community service to collect and sort clothing donations to support local women in need.
WGB, founded by local business women and run and operated solely by volunteers, focuses on providing clothes, shoes and accessories for local women and children in crisis. Opening their "store" filled with donations once a month, they help an average of 200 women each month and have distributed close to 600,000 items of clothing over the past 5 years!
Volunteer with WOW and Women Giving Back
Saturday, October 26th - 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
20 Export Dr. Sterling, VA
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Bring one of the donation items listed below and help us as we sort through the warehouse and stock the "store" - open to current residents of local shelters, transitional housing facilities and safe houses on the second Saturday of every month based on a voucher system via social workers.
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Network with the group of professional women who launched WGB back in 2004 and other WOW members over wine, cheese and snacks. After working hard in the warehouse all morning, they'll be able to share some of the touching WGB success stories that will make all of the hard work worth it!
Space is extremely limited and spots will be reserved on a first come, first-served basis. For questions, please email WOWRedskins@redskins.com.
