For thirteen years, The Women’s Home has been a fortunate recipient of ExxonMobil’s WAVE (Women’s Annual Volunteer Event) Day community event. This year on April 27, 120 volunteers spent the day with us, providing our clients with valuable knowledge through workshops such as Interview Skills, Financial Literacy, Networking, Wellness, and Dress for Success. ExxonMobil brought inspiring speakers along with a delicious lunch for 40 of our clients as well as 16 ladies from the Santa Maria Hostel. For their on-site service project, WAVE Day workers redecorated Barbara’s House, one of the cottages at our Montrose campus: they painted walls and cabinets and even donated a TV! Volunteers also donated clothes and helped organize and sort in The Cottage Shop. Additionally, for every hour each volunteer served, ExxonMobil donates funding to The Women’s Home.
Thank you, WAVE Day volunteers and ExxonMobil!
