(Rock Island, IL) – The Royal Neighbors of America Board of Directors and Executive Team will exchange their business suits for painting clothes and work gloves when they paint the gymnasium and plant flowers at the Rock Island YWCA. These activities will help make the YWCA a more attractive place for women and their families.

Each year, the Royal Neighbors directors from across the country join with local executives to volunteer for a project that will empower women.

“Working side-by-side on a volunteer project brings us together in a different environment,” said Cynthia Tidwell, Royal Neighbors President/CEO. “It’s not what we’re used to doing in our corporate positions, but we enjoy making a difference. It is part of our legacy to empower women to reach their full potential, and the YWCA plays a vital role in providing services to women who are building a better life.”
