The Fund for Women & Girls, a community-led fund at the Community Foundation of the Mahoning Valley, put the spotlight on the work of five women at its Gems of the Valley event. The honor recognizes women doing important work to make the Valley a better place for all, especially when that work is overlooked or underappreciated.
Selected by the Fund for Women & Girls Guiding Circle, this year’s Gems are:
Lynn Anderson, activist and organizer for Sustainable Youngstown.
Meghan DeGregory, director of operations for Thrive 10:10.
Jennifer Evans, housing program manager for Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation.
Allison Smith, artist and founder of Outreach Quilt and Artist Guild.
Dee Traylor, manager of the Resource Mothers program at Mercy Health.
