The Give-a-Way kickoff luncheon was held on May 24, 2012 at noon at the Savannah Morning News auditorium. The luncheon is a fast-paced, entertaining and thought-provoking event, featuring our area’s top professional women exchanging heart-to-heart conversations about the challenges facing women and children in the Coastal Empire community. The Give-a-Way kick-off luncheon is made possible through the generous support of the Savannah Morning News and Armstrong Atlantic State University.

Give-a-Way donations will be used to provide funds for transportation and Chatham Area Transit (CAT) bus passes for women and children who are being served through United Way programs and services.”For many of us, there is never any question about how we get from one place to another, only which way to go to avoid traffic. Unfortunately, for many women in our community, transportation is one major barrier,” said Wren Mills, vice president and general manager of Nu8tar Asphalt Refining, LLC and United Way Women’s Legacy Council Chair. “Inspired by our growing strength in numbers and generosity, we hope to further impact our community by organizing more women to get involved with their time and resources.”
