Board of Visitors Flower Girls volunteer at UMOM

Flower GirlsThe Board of Visitors Flower Girls — all seniors in high school — recently gathered to donate their time and talent to UMOM New Day Centers. The girls helped children residing at UMOM to decorate keepsake water bottles, play games and do special arts and crafts projects.

“The event at UMOM helps those in need and educates the young women selected to be Flower Girls at our annual Charity Ball about how the Board of Visitors works with charities in our community,” said Mona Smith, chairman of The Board of Visitors.

Established in 1908, The Board of Visitors is the oldest charitable organization in Arizona. Its members volunteer to raise funds to serve the healthcare needs of women, children and the elderly.

The BOV has donated more than $18 million to local charities to help improve the lives of hundreds of thousands of people in our community.
