Soroptimist of Emmaus works to benefit women and girls in the Lehigh Valley.  We provide scholarships for women who are head of household and enrolled in a certified educational program, we provide information to High School female students on healthy relationships, and we provide a scholarship to a student in East Penn School District through the school's Angel Network.  We also have a music scholarship fund and a fund for seriously ill women to assist with payments for rent, food or utility bills.  Every dollar we earn goes to improving the lives of women and girls in our community.
