‘Success’ Says It All: Global Women’s Leadership Network PA Sister Society Volunteers with Dress for Success

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. – Success was the theme of the day as 22 members of the Global Women’s Leadership Network Pa. Sister Society volunteered with Dress for Success, a statewide event supported by Vizo Financial, in various locations throughout the month of June. (There’s no mention of what Vizo has to do with the event except for the quotes, so I figured we’d pop in the phrase” , a statewide event supported by Vizo Financial,” to explain why we’re publishing it.

For the second year in a row, credit union women and men from all over Pennsylvania participated in different Dress for Success initiatives coordinated through the Pa. Sister Society’s Community Committee. 

On June 14, 2018, volunteers sorted and organized donations at the Harrisburg Mall in Harrisburg, Pa. Volunteers in Allegheny and Fayette counties also spent the day sorting and organizing donations on June 19. On June 25, credit union women from Erie County donated their time, while volunteers in Luzerne county assisted with registration and golf hole spotter positions during the Dress for Success Links Fore Success Golf Outing.
