SAVANNAH — Twenty local women — philanthropists and community leaders — recently formed the United Way’s Women’s Legacy Council. The members share a common mission: to make a difference in the lives of women and children in the Coastal Empire through philanthropy and service.
The Women’s Legacy Council Committee will meet monthly to evaluate community needs and to determine how to best use the United Way’s community-based agenda, support and resources. The goal is to leverage the financial contributions and build influence to make a difference. Each member contributes at the leadership level to the United Way. All women donors giving at this level or higher are welcomed as members of the WLC.
Leading this new group is Cathy Hill, vice president Coastal Region of Georgia Power Co.
“Our members share a demonstrated commitment to address challenges facing women and children in our community. I am very excited to have an opportunity through the Women’s Leadership Council to bring our local philanthropic women to the front lines to address our current community needs and opportunities,” Hill said.
United Way’s Women’s Legacy Council will kick off their effort with a give-away fundraiser. WLC members are asking individuals to make donations through June 11. Donations will be used to provide CAT bus passes for women who, without the help of the community, might not have the means to otherwise find a ride. Individuals can help by making contributions at BB&T Bank, Carver State Bank, First Chatham Bank, Sea Island Bank, SunTrust Bank, The Savannah Bank and Wachovia Bank.  
For more information or to learn about becoming a member of the United Way’s Women’s Legacy Council, call Julie Cyr at (912) 651-7714 or e-mail jcyr@uwce.org.
