    Start off 2019 with a bang!  We are so looking forward to our NAWBO Richmond Holiday Luncheon this Friday, January 4, 2019!

    We will hear inspiring words from Morgan Rhudy and Michele Rhudy, Girl Power Grants, and Lorae Ponder, Executive Director, HomeAgain, recipient of a $10,000 grant from Girl Power Grants this spring as part of their 3rd Annual Big Give! 

    And of course we will still hold our food drive to support our Greater Richmond community and Feed More!  The need for support is year round so we encourage you and your colleagues to contribute -- both canned goods and monetary contributions are welcome.  Following our Holiday luncheon, we will bring everything to Feed More!
