Women helping women


Women gave each other a helping hand in Berks County Sunday.

It was the fifth annual "Women Helping Women" event at the Riverview Nursery in Muhlenberg Township.

Several local businesswoman came together to throw the event, which benefits Mary's Shelter.. a home for pregnant women in need.

"A long time ago a very good business friend of mine, who's now deceased, said to me when you're given many blessings, it's your responsibility to give back," said Diane Salks.

There was a day of shopping and a Chinese auction.

Organizers were pleased with the great turnout.


They also say supporters can donate to Mary's Shelter anytime of the year.

They say the shelter -- which has locations in Berks and Lehigh counties --always needs diapers, formula and other supplies.
