Women United, a United Way of Greater Baytown Area & Chambers County affinity group, received a donation from the Baytown Chapters of Beta Sigma Phi. 

Melody Oviedo, immediate past president of the Beta Sigma Phi’s XAGZ chapter said, “The Chapters’ members wanted to donate the proceeds of their annual kickoff event to a local organization. They made their decision after learning about ALICE (Asset Limited Income Constrained Employed) and the Women United’s mission to empower women.” 

She presented the donation to Jennifer Walsh, who chairs the affinity group for United Way. 

Walsh thanked her for the generous gift saying, “Women United is working on plans to host an outreach program. This gift will help support that program.” 

Oviedo spent time to learn more about Women United and United Way and hopes to engage Beta Sigma Phi to support the efforts helping people improve their quality of life.
