The YWCA of Niagara Frontier joined more than 220 YWCAs across the country to launch a campaign Monday to reintroduce the organization to the community and educate the public about its mission to empower women and eliminate racism.
“At YWCA of the Niagara Frontier we are very excited to join our sister YWCAs around the country highlighting the amazing services provided to women and girls, and the entire community, by the YWCA,” said Kathleen A. Granchelli, YWCA of the Niagara Frontier chief operating officer.
The YWCA has been on a mission for 150 years to promote voting rights, civil rights, affordable housing, pay equity, violence prevention and more, but they said Monday that not enough people are aware of the size or impact of the organization.
Today the YWCA is one of the top 25 largest charities in the country with total revenues of more than $775 million and helps more than 2 million women and children in the U.S. each year.
Granchelli invited the public to join the YWCA and learn more about it at: www.ywcaniagarafrontier.org and nationally at www.ywca.org.
