The Community Service Committee will highlight A Wider Circle during the AGA Chapter luncheon on Wednesday, January 24, 2018.

The mission of A Wider Circle is simple: to help one individual and one family after another to rise out of poverty. The hope is that every child and adult has the chance to succeed and the opportunity to live well.

We will be hosting a collection drive at the January luncheon to collect professional attire and accessories to help support A Wider Circle’s Professional Development Program. We will be collecting suits, suit separates, dress shirts, blouses, ties, dresses, purses, briefcases, belts, and shoes.

Each members interested in participating will receive a raffle ticket for each article of clothing or item donated and a raffle ticket for every $5 donated during the luncheon. The lucky participant will receive a $50 gift card! So, please bring those charitable donations!
