Women United: 2,000 Books Wrapped (and counting)!

You are here

Last night at Hi-Wire brewing, members of Women United wrapped more than 2,000 books for local middle school kids this holiday season!

"Looking around the room, I was grateful for your presence and humbled to witness a servant spirit in volunteering your evening to benefit students right here in Asheville and Buncombe County," said Leadership Giving Manager Elizabeth Allen. "You are sharing the gift of dreaming, imagination, and, of course reading."

We extend our gratitude to the following: 

  • Barnes and Noble for all their support. This would NOT be possible without their generosity.
  • Our Women United members for all their hard work leading up to the event and on the big night.
  • HiWire Brewing for letting us use their space and being such gracious hosts. 
  • Women United 2016 sponsor Beverly Hanks & Associates
