Sterling Women Giving Circle Issues 1st Donation of $10,000 to Loudoun Hunger Relief
DULLES, VA, May 15, 2019 – Reston Limousine Services (RLS) is proud to announce President and CEO Kristina Bouweiri’s new philanthropy initiative, Sterling Women Giving Circle, has made its inaugural grant of $10,000 to Loudoun Hunger Relief, a local nonprofit that provides food assistance to low-income residents.
Bouweiri founded Sterling Women Giving Circle in late 2018 to act as a multiplier on the giving power of women in Loudoun County. She led the effort to attract members to the Circle, who were asked to contribute in $100 shares, with each share entitling the donor to one vote for a grant recipient.
Members raised $10,000 for the organization’s first grant and selected Loudoun Hunger Relief as its first beneficiary. Bouweiri announced the donation at the May 2 Sterling Women luncheon, a monthly networking event that she founded in 2008 to support and mentor local businesswomen.
“This is a remarkable community effort, with women helping families in need in Loudoun—really helping other women feed their children,” said Bouweiri, a longtime Loudoun County resident. “The power of all of us coming together is amazing. It is a testament to the strength of women helping women that we were able to raise $10,000 in the first year.”
Loudoun Hunger Relief, which has served the community since 1991, will be using the grant to purchase of a Mobile Food Pantry vehicle. The vehicle will travel the county, bringing pantry services to low-income neighborhoods with transportation challenges.
“Loudoun Hunger Relief is humbled and honored to be the inaugural recipient of the Sterling Women Giving Circle grant. At Loudoun Hunger, we see the power of community every day, and we believe in the impact of neighbors helping neighbors. This grant is so meaningful because it is truly a gathering of community to meet the most basic of needs: the need for food,” Loudoun Hunger Relief Executive Director Jennifer Montgomery said.
