The Penn Women’s Center: Celebrating 35 Years
February 17, 2009, Volume 55, No. 22

The Penn Women’s Center (PWC) is a central locus of activity, advocacy, and activism at Penn. We support students and other Penn community members through advising, advocacy, crisis counseling, educational programs, networking, policy development, referrals, social events, and workshops. Our living room, conference room, multipurpose room, and nursing room are used by women and men from all over the campus. We are thrilled to be working with the talented members of PCUW 2009 and all the women’s interest groups who use the center each week.

Inspired by President Obama’s call to service and motivated by the economic crisis to redouble our efforts to help others, the Penn Women’s Center invites you to join us in celebrating our 35th Anniversary with a week of service projects.

Drop by the Women’s Center anytime from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. March 16–20 and join us in making fleece blankets, recording books-on-tape, and assembling coloring and activity books for kids in Philadelphia shelters. Then join us the following Friday, March 27 for a dessert party for all our volunteers. For further details, please visit our website: www.vpul.upenn.edu/pwc.

Don’t have a free hour March 16-20? Then help celebrate our 35th by making a donation of $3, $5, $35 or $350 to the Penn Women’s Center Gift Fund. How? Simply follow the “Donations” link on the main page of our website.

To everyone who has supported us over the past 35 years, our grateful thanks. Here’s looking forward to the next 35!

–– Jennifer Jackson, Outreach/Program Coordinator, Penn Women’s Center
