Lunch-and-learn session to promote Women United

Women United is a network of caring and professional local women volunteering time and talents to worthy projects. The Campus Campaign for United Way invites women at the University of Windsor to learn more at a lunchtime session Wednesday, March 29.

With a mission of mobilizing the caring power of women to support kids in Windsor-Essex from cradle to career, the group is investing directly in United Way’s On Track to Success program, which helps young people graduate high school and attend post-secondary or trade education.

“Joining efforts with the amazing women of Women United as well as supporting causes that have become so dear to me has been more rewarding than I could have imagined,” says co-chair Melissa Caschera. “I am grateful for the experiences I have had thus far, interacting with children and teens who have truly benefited from some of our efforts, including On Track to Success and Summer Eats for Kids programs.”

The March 29 event is sponsored by Unifor Local 2458 and will run noon to 1 p.m. Admission is free and includes a free meal, but attendees must register by March 21:
