Dining for Women Set to Eat and Meet on MLK Day

The Weavers Way Ambler chapter of Dining for Women welcomes all to learn about the group at a gathering the evening of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Monday, Jan. 20 at the Free Library of Springfield Township.

Dining for Women is a global giving circle founded in 2003 that is dedicated to transforming lives and eradicating poverty among women and girls in the developing world. With more than 450 chapters in the United States, DFW has invested more than $7 million and impacted the lives of 1.2 million people worldwide. 

The group meets each month in member homes to enjoy a potluck dinner and learn about each month’s designated charity. Attendees donate what they want (as little as $5 on up) to the grantee. For January, the grantee is GAIA Vaccine Foundation, a Providence, RI-based organization that collaborates with West African physicians and provides support for prevention-related clinical activities in the region. The foundation’s mission is to reduce the incidence of infectious diseases that disproportionately affect women and their families in the developing world and to promote the development of globally relevant, globally accessible vaccines.

The Free Library of Springfield is located at 8900 Hawthorne Lane in Wyndmoor. More information on Dining for Women can be found at www.diningforwomen.org. To sign up to attend the January meeting, or for further information, contact Carrie Eisenhandler at ceisenhandler@comcast.net or 215-872-2536.
