On Wednesday this week, the YK Delta Women in Philanthropy group is holding their second annual membership meeting at the Bethel Cultural Center. The meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. and is open to all women.
Member and organizer Vicki Malone sees the group as a way of staying connected to the YK Delta community and its needs.
“It’s a great opportunity to get together with people and make a difference. I can’t make a big difference all by myself,” Malone said. “I don’t have those kind of resources, but if I join with other women I can make a difference.”
With approximately 55 members, last year the group raised over $25,000. It has given money to both international and local projects.
