COMMUNITY News:

Chapter BC, Los Alamos-based PEO will be hosting a huge multi-family yard sale from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, June 25, at 1660 and 1646 Camino Uva on North Mesa in Los Alamos.

Proceeds from their fine quality items (not junk) will support PEO’s philanthropies focused on providing scholarships, grants, awards, loans and running Cottey College for women to pursue their studies.

In the spring of 2022, Chapter BC was able to help a local woman with young children obtain a $2,600 scholarship to help her complete her bachelor’s degree. Additionally, the AK Chapter, PEO at Los Alamos worked with her to land a $3,000 grant to further her education.

PEO, a philanthropic educational organization, has been celebrating women who have helped women reach for the stars for over 150 years. Since its founding in 1869, the nonprofit organization has helped more than 119,000 women pursue educational goals by providing more than $398 million in grants, scholarships, awards and loans.

The Sisterhood also owns and supports Cottey College. Through her membership, the PEO Sisterhood has united more than half a million women in the United States and Canada who are passionate about helping women advance through education, while supporting and motivating them. In addition to educational philanthropies, the PEO Sisterhood provides a framework of support and community for all members.

What began as a friendship between seven women in Mount Pleasant, Iowa, is now one of the oldest women’s organizations in North America with nearly 6,000 chapters.
