RCU supports United Way’s Little Black Dress Campaign

Five Railway Credit Union employees are each wearing the same black dress all week as part of the 5th Annual Missouri Slope Areawide United Way’s Little Black Dress Campaign.

During the week of September 17-20, we’ll be joining more than two hundred local women by wearing a black dress or outfit to illustrate the effects of poverty. The funds raised are used to support the education initiative of the United Way and focus on keeping families in their homes, making sure kids can get to school and learn, as well as finding mentors for these students. Participants can donate their business outfits to the Abused Adult Resource Center’s Career Closet.

The goal of this year’s campaign is to raise $1,500 per team. The last three years, United Way’s Women United has raised almost $250,000 through the Little Black Dress Campaign.
