The Women of Virtue Transitional Foundation had its first annual Cupcakes, Backpacks, Pizza and Chit Chat Summer Social on July 15 at Studio South Performing Arts Center in the Glynn Place Mall. Twenty-five registered for the event and 14 attended. The remaining backpacks were donated to Studio South Performing Arts Center for children who might need assistance with school supplies. The bags were filled with supplies and handmade bookmarks that are the organization’s signature touch.

Sonya McKinzie, founder and executive director of Women of Virtue Transitional Foundation (WOVTF), is grateful for new partnerships with Heather Driggers, owner of Studio South Performing Arts Center; Holloway’s Bakery; Lt. Ricky Evans of the Glynn County Police Department; Pamela Perry, Paparazzi Independent Consultant and GTC Glynn Place Cinemas. Three generation of women represented Team WOVTF — Sonya McKinzie, Barbara Green, Cassandra McKinzie and McKinzie Baker. The event featured a lot of laughs, tears, fun and games and education.
