The board of directors of NYS Woman, Inc, - Buffalo Niagara Chapter, is pleased to announce that they will be participating in a volunteer program with Everywoman Opportunity Center of Buffalo (EWOC) for this upcoming year. We are truly excited to be able to offer our assistance to this very worthy group. Due to all the budget cutbacks, our help is coming at an important time as EWOC is struggling financially and cannot afford to pay for a lot of the things they need to run their program effectively.
After meeting with director Myrna Young and her assistant Elizabeth Eisenhauer, we have established three areas that our members can volunteer to help with:
- Organizing the donations of professional clothes in their "Closet" that their clients choose from.
- Working with the clients by assisting them with clothing choices that suit them best.
- Volunteering to man the reception desk at the center (answer phone, help with various office tasks)
- EWOC Mentoring Program- This would involve being a volunteer to mentor a client. Details of this new program have not yet been fully established, but would include meeting monthly and assisting a woman who has entered the program at EWOC.
Our chapter needs your help, so please contact Joyce DeLong (634-5966 [email protected]) if you are interested in being a part of this important program with EWOC. It promises to be a very fulfilling and rewarding experience!
