    Description:
    Who Do You Inspire?

    As part of National Women's Month, let's take an opportunity to be the inspiration. The Women's Center of Raleigh is such an essential and impactful part of our community and it would be nice to support their efforts. We can do this by providing needed items from their list. We can also send cards/letters of encouragement to staff and residents.

    Dates for drop off at the LGBT Center of Raleigh are:

    • Tuesday, March 16th from 12-1
    • Tuesday, March 23rd from 12-1
    • Monday, March 29th from 12-1

    If any of these dates won't work, please reach out as Kori has offered to assist with drop off as well. I will be stationed downstairs to made drop off a little easier for folks.

    A list of requested items are below. Thank you so much for being a part of supporting women in Raleigh. This is the month celebrating the women who have dedicated their lives to the betterment of our community and I'm excited for our group to join in=)
