For the eighth consecutive year, the Panhandle chapter of Business and Professional Women made a cash donation to help fight sexual and domestic violence.
During its December meeting the group presented $1,000 to The DOVES Program, which provides services for anyone who has experienced or been affected by sexual, domestic and dating violence. Panhandle Business and Professional Women has given $5,700 to DOVES since 2012.
“Panhandle Business and Professional Women appreciates the work DOVES does throughout the Panhandle and we are honored to support them”, said the organization’s president Bridget Peck.
In accepting the award for DOVES, board member Lanette Richards told Panhandle BPW members, “we appreciate your ongoing financial support and applaud your advocacy efforts to improve the lives of all women in the workplace, including survivors.”
The Scottsbluff-based chapter of the Business and Professional Women Foundation is the largest in Nebraska. To learn more about upcoming events, scholarships, professional awards and membership opportunities, visit panhandlebpw.org.
