The Daily Rundown — The Latest News Affecting Women & Girls in Our Region

By Mariah Craven on August 24th, 2011

In today’s post-earth-shattering rundown: The Women’s Foundation’s Grantee Partners are featured for their work with senior citizens and local residents who need help saving money.

— Low-income seniors from the District spent part of this summer relaxing in West Virginia farm country, thanks to So Others Might Eat (a Women’s Foundation Grantee Partner).  The AARP Bulletin has the details of Senior Summer Camp, which allows residents 65 and older to spend a week “relaxing, socializing and recharging their spirits.”

— Another Grantee Partner, Capital Area Asset Builders, is featured in the Washington Informer for their work helping D.C.-area residents “reverse their sagging economic fortunes” and showing them “how to save money towards goals such as higher education, homeownership and entrepreneurial pursuits.”
