Committees & Groups

Women United group is a network of driven women passionate about impacting our local communities through leadership, philanthropy, service, and volunteerism. Our local Women United focuses on Early Childhood Success, focusing on childhood literacy and kindergarten readiness, through volunteer hours at various local nonprofits, hosting the Power of the Purse luncheon, and financially contributing to Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library programs in Clarke and Oconee counties.
