Weaving the Stories of Women’s Lives

Weaving the Stories of Women’s Lives

March is designated as National Women’s History month. And this year, the theme is “Weaving the Stories of Women’s Lives.”

At Pennsylvania Women Work, we continuously see the lives of women woven together to create great successes and new beginnings to their stories. Many of our New Choices students are recommended to us by family and friends who have participated in the program. Our 3 Cups of Coffee® program pairs unemployed women with established professionals within their field of interest for a unique mentoring program. And our board of directors, corporate advisory committee and staff work diligently to support Pennsylvania Women Work’s services and programs dedicated to enhancing the lives of Pennsylvania women.

This year, we invite you to help author your own story into the lives of those we touch. This can be done by sharing your story, expressing your gratitude or sending encouragement to someone your care about with Pennsylvania Women Work’s new greeting cards.

This 12-pack of cards includes three sets of four designs and twelve envelopes. Cards can be purchased for yourself or shipped to a friend! Each pack costs $25 (plus shipping and handling) and all proceeds benefit Pennsylvania Women Work’s programs. More than just a card, on the back we state that this is a donation and that money raised from the sale of each card helps women find jobs with family sustaining wages.
