In the spirit of the holiday season, the Ripon/Green Lake chapter of Professional Women’s Connection will collect donations for the Green Lake Area Animal Shelter.

Items for the animal shelter include: disinfecting cleaner with bleach, disinfecting wipes with or without bleach, cat litter, dog and cat treats, tennis balls, dog and cat toys, garbage bags, laundry detergent, dish soap, toilet paper, paper towels and stamps. Attendees who bring donations will be entered into a drawing for raffle prizes.

Professional Women’s Connection is a networking group that aims to provide educational opportunities for area business and professional women, focusing on professional growth, personal development and the enhancement of leadership skills.

It is not a fundraising organization. The money for the annual scholarship comes from member dues, enabling current members to give back to the next generation of professional women.
