WBN Annual Service Project
Each year, WBN chooses a deserving organization for its annual service project. Chapters may submit an application on behalf of an organization they feel would benefit from some type of active participation from our WBN members. Throughout the year, different activities/fundraising opportunities for the service project take place.
A call for applications takes place annually. Learn more about the application requirements.
2020-2021 Service Project
Women’s Business Network (WBN) is proud to announce Angela’s Angels of Latrobe as our 2020-2021 Service Project. Located in Latrobe, Angela’s Angels is headed by Angela Rose O’Brien and women of the Laurel Highlands Chapter, and serves underprivileged teen girls and women by providing them with new and previously loved prom dresses and special occasion wear at no cost.
They have recently expanded their focus during this Pandemic to include working with all girls and women and nonprofits in need of appropriate attire such as Adelphoi and will provide complimentary outfits to abused, neglected and at-risk youth as a reward and incentive for exemplary behavior.
Additional Non-Profits include The Blackburn Center for abused women and girls, as well as Welcome Home ,another nonprofit that
assists women that may need to flee their homes with just the clothes on their backs.
We will also service the Westmoreland County Regional Services Youth Center to build self esteem to dependent youth by providing appropriate clothing for court appearances and appointments.
To find out more about this fantastic organization, visit www.angelasangels.org.
For the past 14 years AngelasAngels.Org has been providing prom and special occasion attire as well as building self esteem to financially disadvantaged young girls in our neighborhoods and beyond at no cost.
In today’s changing world, respect and self esteem are essential to a young woman’s growth. Our mission is to protect these traits and have these young ladies walk away remembering how we made them feel.
At any given time we offer over 1700 gowns & dresses, shoes, jewelry & purses for FREE.
Our organization consists of all volunteers and every penny of donations received goes back into our cause.
Please consider supporting our 501 (c) (3) non profit organization at your chapter meetings giving us the exposure we need to reach out to more women in need.
We have assisted refugees from Kenya, special needs school in the Bronx as well as local schools in need and special circumstances here in our hometowns.
