We are excited to announce that philanthropic group 100WomenStrong has awarded Volunteers of America Chesapeake (VOAC) a $10,000 donation for the Hope’s Chariot Transportation Program operated by the VOAC Loudoun Homeless Services Center.
VOAC is one of 20 Loudoun County nonprofits that will share $193,700 in contributions from 100WomenStrong. Other organizations address health, hunger, and education needs throughout the county.
100WomenStrong is a philanthropic group founded in 2008 to improve quality of life for residents in Loudoun County, Virginia.
Karen G. Schaufeld, founder and president of 100WomenStrong said,
“We strive to give the right grant at the right time to support Loudoun organizations that bridge critical gaps and address urgent needs in our county. We want all Loudoun County residents to achieve their full potential, and there are many transformative nonprofits working toward that goal.”
The rain held off on April 19, for 100WomenStrong to honor grant recipients at the Shoe’s Cup & Cork restaurant in Leesburg.
VOAC’s portion of the funds will help shuttle homeless clients to and from jobs and educational programs, as well as provide resources for VOAC to continue collaborations with Loudoun officials to make upgrades to the transportation infrastructure county-wide.
