Appleton - The Mid-Day Women's Alliance presented a $7,600 check to the COTS program in Appleton on Wednesday. The money was raised last December during the group's annual Black and Pink Ball.
COTS says the donation is enough to fund about half of the programs at the shelter that aim to help women and children break the cycle of homelessness.
"How much does it cost to feed and clothe a person? Not that much, and so if we just do a little bit, if everybody would do their part, we'd go a long way to solving homelessness in our community, and I know Appleton has a great spirit of giving, so I'm really excited to be a part of the community," said Kimberly Lee, member of Mid-Day Women's Alliance.
The group was set up as an outlet for businesswomen to network. They're also dedicated to raising money for non-profit organizations that help women improve their lives.
