On August 7th, LVSF was chosen as one of the local non-profits to compete for the quarterly awards funded by the members and business sponsors of 100 Women Who Care. Each randomly selected organization makes a brief five-minute presentation and answers questions about the organization from those present. The bulk of LVSF’s presentation was made by one of our students, Silvia Kingsford, who spoke movingly about how the program has helped her both in progressing her career, and with increased engagement in her children’s education.

LVSF won second place and was awarded the donations of members not present at the August meeting. To date, LVSF has received about $10,000, from more than 120 individual donations.

We are so grateful for the support and generosity of 100 Women Who Care, and we are excited about the program improvements and expansion that they have made possible.
