Monday, September 19th - Friday, September 23rd at multiple locations
Women United and friends lead a poverty awareness campaign, Little Black Dress, with more than two hundred women each wearing a black dress or outfit for four days, along with a goal to raise $500 each and a team goal of $1,500.
The funds raised are used to fund the education initiative of the United Way and are focused on keeping families in their homes, making sure kids are able to get to school and learn, as well as finding mentors for these students.
The last six years, United Way's Women United has raised over $300,000 through the Little Black Dress Campaign. Funds support United Way's Education Initiative helping women and children to overcome the barriers of poverty so they are successful in school and in life. The participants have also donated over 250 business outfits to the Abused Adult Resource Center's Career Closet! for more information please visit https://www.msaunitedway.org/littleblackdress
