Redevelopment Opportunities for Women Receives 2012 Project XOXO Award
for Its Local Charitable Work
St. Louis, MO – February 14, 2012 – Thirty-two years of providing strong local advocacy and education for low-income women impacted by domestic violence and/or homelessness earned Redevelopment Opportunities for Women (ROW) a Project XOXO Award in 2012. This award was created by members of the St. Louis legal community who first joined together in 2010 to raise funds for local charities that have a demonstrated track record of changing lives.
Meg Schnabel, Executive Director of ROW, happily attended a February 11th Annual Valentine’s Event at the Old Courthouse in downtown St. Louis in order to join the other nine charitable recipient organizations in recognizing the donors who made the as-yet-undisclosed monetary awards possible.
“Everyone at ROW is ecstatic about this great community recognition and funding opportunity,” said Schnabel. “We are always looking for new ways to bring the unfortunate existence of intimate partner violence and poverty to light, with the goal of creating widespread public awareness and victim support opportunities.”
All donors were recognized at the event, and given opportunities to meet grateful recipient organizations wishing to share details on the difference that such donations make in the lives of many in the Saint Louis community.
“I nominated ROW because I believe it provides a lot of valuable and unique services to women and their families, and additional financial support and in-kind contributions would further support these services and allow ROW to help even more women in the St. Louis area,” explained former ROW Board Member Jennifer Visintine.
