I am impressed with Gloria Taylor's efforts in helping families (that otherwise have nowhere to turn) thrive and prosper through her efforts in Community Women Against Hardship. I have participated in the various fundraisers for this worthy charitable organization, and I am in awe of the tremendous effort put forth by all its volunteers to accomplish its mission. I have seen firsthand the center from which the charity is run and how generous donations are put to good use to help families get the help they need to have a fighting chance in these especially difficult times. I am also impressed with the cultural and educational programs (like the Jazz music program) that elevate this organization beyond just a typical "charity" helping those less fortunate. Kudos to CWAH for infusing these elements. I will continue to support this worthwhile organization as long as it is still going.
I have been donating to this organization for at least 15 years. This is a small group of volunteers and their executive director are dedicated to making our community a better place. I enjoy going to their fundraisers. They are always so entertaining.
I always enjoy their fall gala. It is so much fun and the music is great!!! They also have an auction. The items are great. I enjoy giving to this group because I have personally seen them work miracles with little to no money. They give so much to try to impact the quality of life for some low income families.
CWAH director, staff, and volunteers are a testimony to what a few good people can do to change our world ( or our part of it) for the better. The women (and men) who make CWAH an untiring force in the St. Louis community and Bi-State region need our support. The work they do is timely and urgent. Their mission is clear and their determination strong!
A parent came with a burden to bear They came looking for guidance And perhaps a kind word You saw their challenge And decided to help Your caring voice opened a door A child came looking quite sad And then another, with defiance And you welcomed them all They all came with stories Which were all unique You offered your help – and you listened You may have provided a meal You may have provided gifts You may have provided guidance You may have worked behind the scenes But slowly a change came about The mood seemed lighter And then there was a smile, Maybe first from you Then maybe from a child, a parent It made all the difference to those you touched & helped. The child, the parent looked to you And then there was a smile! Thank you for the smiles, the support, and the love you provide.
