Curran Moher Weis to Sponsor Event to Provide Resources for Women and Girls in Shelters
Curran Moher Weis takes an active role in supporting and giving back to the Northern Virginia community, particularly initiatives that protect children and families. This year, the firm will serve as the Champion Sponsor of the signature fundraising event for the organization, Bringing Resources to Aid Women’s Shelters (BRAWS).
BRAWS’ mission is to bring dignity and empowerment to women and girls living in shelters by providing new, personally fitted undergarments and menstrual supplies. To put their impact in perspective, in a single year, the organization distributed more than 2 million of those essential supplies to more than 80 shelters and schools that serve some 6,000 women and girls.
In addition, BRAWS, in partnership with the Girl Up Club’s menstrual equity program at Justice, is collaborating with Fairfax County Public Schools to pilot a program providing free menstrual products in several of the schools’ girls’ restrooms for the first time.
The annual event, called “Mardi Bras,” will be held on February 28 this year, at the Westwood Country Club.
