SCCCC Women in Business give back

The Southern Chester County's Women in Business group launched The Giving Back Program on September 7, by volunteering for Project C.U.R.E. in West Grove, Pa.

This week, the Southern Chester County Chamber of Commerce’s Women in Business group launched The Giving Back Program, a new community service initiative aimed at helping to make the community a better place. The program kicked off the initiative by helping to sort medical supplies with community member Project C.U.R.E. at the Chamber’s new headquarters in West Grove.

"We are thrilled to see The Giving Back Program launch this week with the help of Project C.U.R.E.” said Cheryl Kuhn, President and CEO of the SCCCC. “Our hope for this initiative is to continue to organize volunteer opportunities that will benefit our non-profit members, and the Southern Chester County as a whole.”

About 15 participants took part in the program, sorting and packaging medical supplies that will be sent to under served areas around the world.

“We are grateful for the volunteer service from the Southern Chester County Chamber of Commerce,” said Kathy Hrenko, Operations Director for Project C.U.R.E. “After a brief Project C.U.R.E. orientation, they were able to sort and pack valuable donated medical supplies that will reach resource-limited communities around the globe.”

The Giving Back Program is run through the Women in Business group which is a longstanding networking and education program of the Chamber that is comprised of female, and male, professionals who meet monthly at various locations around Southern Chester County.
