ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Ten women were honored Tuesday for their leadership in volunteerism in the St. Louis region. The Women of Achievement organization has been honoring women for 56 years and KMOX has been a partner for over 30 years.
The women chosen have volunteered in a variety of areas including improving the health of newborns and senior citizens, financial literacy for students and raised thousands of dollars for mammograms for underserved women.
Another honoree is working to raise millions of dollars for a family genealogy center at the St. Louis County Library.
Each of the women say they began volunteering at an early age and believe they have a responsibility to give back to the community.
