As we are settling into the routine of school time and quickly approaching the holiday season, there are already charity giving in the works and fundraisers going on. Let me tell you about a special charity that not only gives you delightfully tasting food, but also gives to those in need.
Purchasing food items and gifts from the Women’s Bean Project is just the place to find delicious treats and warm your heart with transforming lives with each purchase.
More About The Women’s Bean Project
Back in 1989, our founder, Jossy Eyre, was volunteering at a daytime women’s shelter in Denver, CO. She realized that while the shelter kept the women safe, it could not help them make lasting changes in their lives.
To help the women achieve independence and self-sufficiency, she needed to provide an opportunity to experience the dignity of work by learning how to get – and keep – a job. She invested $500 of her own money and put two women to work; the start of the social enterprise we are today.
