MLK Service Day

Many joined us for a Day of Service honoring Dr. King's legacy at Women Giving Back on Monday, January 15th.

Volunteers sorted through clothing donations in the warehouse, stocked and organized the boutique to ensure that our women have the best attire to choose from, provided personal shopping assistance to help clients pick out appropriate interview/work clothing and childcare.

WGB Welcomes New Program Coordinator

AHT Insurance

Please help us welcome, Hunner Rezek, to the Women Giving Back family! Taking on the new role of Program Coordinator, her experience in conflict resolution and program management is sure to help us actively reach our goals for the 2018 year and more.

While pursuing her Bachelors of Arts in Conflict Analysis and Resolution at George Mason University, Hunner served as a community activist in advocating for immigrant and minority rights while holding many leadership roles in campus organizations such as a community service chair, executive board member, and ambassador. Hunner brings an undeniable energy and passion towards serving the community and keeps her goals as priority.

Welcome to Women Giving Back, Hunner! We’re thrilled to have you on our team.

School Break Volunteers

Winter break brought out some new and familiar faces in January. Time off from school and work didn’t stop these awesome volunteers from paying it forward and helping WGB out. Thank you!

Successful Sorts

Summer Newman

“Summer’s here!” Summer’s joy and positivity walks into every Saturday store. And so begins another fun and successful morning of shopping with clients. WGB clients and our volunteers love her for her anything’s possible attitude.

Summer shops with WGB clients who are often overwhelmed with heavy stuff. Summer listens to their stories while she helps them look forward. Together they create a collection of new outfits and accessories. Teaching with fashion displays she creates for the store, Summer also shares her hints with clients on how to mix and match their new collection. These personal sessions always end with big hugs and even bigger smiles!

Since 2014, Summer’s been keeping WGB’s promise to its clients with her own special sunshine. This year Summer coordinated her colleagues at Cushman Wakefield to come in for a group sort day and volunteer at Cinco and Santa’s Workshop.

Summer is heading up the Young Executive Task Force with WGB. If you would like to join her committee please email info@womengivingback.org.

Snack Pack Program

Michelle and her adorable son dropped off Snack Packs donated and assembled by MINT (Moms In Touch) at Loudoun. These snack packs were distributed over the holiday weekend. Most of the kids WGB serves receive their only meals at school. These snack packs ensured that they had a meal on their day out of school.

If you would like more info on how you can help WGB's Snack Pack program please email us at info@womengivingback.org.
