The Daniel's House

The St. Patrick's Day sing-a-long is a long standing annual tradition of ours with Daniels House Nursing home. To name a few, we sang When Irish Eyes Are Smiling, McNamara's Band, and Danny Boy followed by sharing Carvel Ice Cream cake with the residents.

A very big thanks to our special guest, Ken Polk, from Alpha Omega Music Studios who accompanied us on guitar.

Young Women's League Dinner Dance

Thank you to all who came out to support the annual Young Women's League winter dinner dance fundraiser.  The night raised $22,000.00 which will be distributed back to different areas in Reading.  Please see our donations page to view where the money was allocated to last year. 

Thanks to all our guests, sponsors and donors

Reading Food Pantry Service Project
A big Thank You to all who came out to support the Reading Food Pantry at Stop & Shop!  We collected 25-30 big boxes of food and other wish list items and raised just under $600 between donations collected at the event and donations made by the members of the Young Women's League.  This made a huge impact on helping restock the shelves of the food pantry. 

New Parker Auditorium TV Screens

Along with other contributors, The Young Women’s League gave an essential donation to help fund TVs for the auditorium at Parker Middle School.  Now the entire balcony audience can see what is happening on stage, which means that current and future 6th graders will finally enjoy the full stage experience.
