PV Women’s Network


Our network has a history of supporting charitable organizations, on a donation basis, by our members.  The incredible charities we have supported include Habitat for Humanity, Sistering, and the Shoebox Project.  These organizations impact the quality of life of women and families and we couldn’t be prouder to support their efforts.


Our next initiative:
