This organization has great heart. They've been at this for almost 40 years and never have they charged any client for any of their services. They are surrounded by volunteers who believe in the mission. I've never seen any organization use its resources so wisely.
We have doctors, nurses, phlebotomists, knitters, Lamaze coaches, baby clothes folders, receptionists and every kind of hard worker you can name. All working with Womankind out of love and compassion.
I am proud to donate the required annual gift, glad to serve on the board and my committees. I'll be happy to give more to these good and generous people.
