Women’s group to host dinner

By Staff | May 15, 2012

The Shepherdstown Branch of American Association of University Women (AAUW) and Dining for Women (DFW) of Martinsburg are hosting a joint meeting and pot-luck dinner. Interested persons in the area are welcome to attend. This event begins at 6 p.m. on Monday, May 14, and will be held at the Shepherdstown Train Station.

Nancy Letteri, Executive Director of the Board of Directors for Children of Vietnam will speak about the organization’s program, Empowering Foundations for Women and Their Children. Donations collected at the meeting will be used by Dining for Women to support this valuable initiative.

Dining for Women is a giving circle. Through member donations, international programs for women living in extreme poverty are funded. Through education about the circumstances of women in some of the poorest countries in the world, members become agents of change. Similarity, AAUW advances equity for women and girls through advocacy, education, philanthropy and research.
