2018 Stone Soup
More than 150 Women United volunteers and guests came together on Feb. 3 to convert thousands of dollars of groceries into meals for the hungry. In less than three hours, these enthusiastic volunteers prepared 400 casseroles and 700 bag lunches. This is enough to feed 2,300 men, women, and children, in 11 local shelters.

Stone Soup shows what happens when women leaders invest their time and financial resources to meet identified community needs. The event represents an ongoing collaboration between United Way and local agencies. It also highlights the importance of private sector partners.

Women United thanks: The Salvation Army Ray & Joan Kroc Corps Community Center for, once again, donating space for the event; USAA for investing $1,500 in support, and for their employees preparing 300 bag lunches; Cox Communications and Kroger for providing funding for supplies; and Chick's Oyster Bar for their in-kind donation of all the casserole pans and lids.

Women United exists to inspire philanthropy and volunteerism among women. They are committed to disrupting the cycle of poverty and equipping women and children in South Hampton Roads for success.
