As one of our greatest fundraisers, we help to support women and children in the county of Volusia through grants given to non-profit organizations!



Chicks for Kicks

Chicks for Kicks

Adopted in 2014, the Women United began the Chicks for Kicks drive that collects new or gently used shoes for all ages, genders and styles to be distributed to these agencies.

Looking to fulfill a community need, the Women United Volusia Chapter asked many of our grant funded agencies what their greatest needs were for their clients. Overwhelmingly, these agencies expressed a need for shoes. 

Who We Fund

Who We Fund

The Women United Volusia Chapter is proud to support local community organizations in Volusia County through limited grant funding.  Funds raised during the Power of the Purse Luncheon are distributed every fall to organizations serving women and children in this community.  We held our 2nd Annual "Evening of Thanks"  which is the Thursday after Thanksgiving every year!  It was a reception for all the non-profits that submitted grants that we awarded funds to.  The 2018 Women United Board and the incoming Women United board, and sponsors were in attendance.  This year it was held at the Cici & Hyatt Brown Art Museum.

United for Little Ones

There are mothers everyday in Volusia County that prepare to welcome their new babies with little to no support system.  In an effort to give them the best foot forward, Women United Volusia Chapter will be delivering Baby Bundles
