Loretta Guy, It’s a Family Affair

Date grant awarded: 1/11/2017

In Queens, New York, the Ladies of Color are bringing local communities social change and improving economic conditions through Loretta Guy’s project, It’s a Family Affair. Founded on the goal to empower young girls to accept their inner spirits, know their self-worth and know they are loved, the project will contribute to their ongoing scholarship program and their annual toy drive. The holiday cheer will be spread far and wide in the Queens community, from low-income housing units and daycare centers to after-school programs and hospitals.
