Local women support area charities

100 Women Bridging Hope, a newly-established philanthropic organization serving Mercer County and Bucks County, Pennsylvania, recently made a donation to LifeTies, Inc.

Founded in January, 100 Women Bridging Hope (100WBH) joins together local women in support of area charities. The ultimate goal is to have a direct financial impact on those most in need. Members are asked to commit $100 every quarter and recipients are chosen from among nonprofits proposed by the members, according to a prepared statement. Every dollar donated goes directly to the organization selected.

LifeTies, Inc. is a supportive network of professional staff and trained volunteers dedicated to helping youth and young adults throughout Mercer County overcome the effects of abuse, neglect or homelessness.
