Women United was formed to inspire, educate, and engage women to become actively involved in leadership, philanthropy, volunteerism, and advocacy in support of their local United Way. Women United is a group of community-minded women who provide the support it takes to build successful lives through United Way’s building blocks of Health, Education, and Basic Needs.
Women United consists of four quarterly breakfasts a year, with the cost of a breakfast included in the membership fee. Everyone is welcome to attend a breakfast for a cost of $20, so please come and learn about us and enjoy breakfast! Each year Women United members rally around a cause in our community and form committees to enact change. Our projects have included rallying around the Northwoods Battered Women’s Shelter’s need for a new facility, all while learning about intimate partner violence in northern Minnesota; supporting the Bemidji Community Food Shelf’s need for a mobile food pantry, which has been serving Blackduck and Kelliher monthly for over 16 months; and most recently, creating Shuttles for Shelters, a transportation initiative for Village of Hope, our local family homeless shelter.
