As Director, I want to welcome you to the Eastern Area of The Links, Incorporated website! With over 3,900 membership volunteers in 76 Chapters along the Eastern seaboard, we are poised to continue promoting the Service and Sisterhood that has long been the heritage of our organization.
Conceptualized, organized, co-founded and incorporated right here in the Eastern Area in 1946, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the Links organization is a premier women’s group in the United States. With participation across 41 states, the District of Columbia, and the Commonwealth of the Bahamas, our commitment to the service of our communities is far-reaching and grows stronger with the passing of each day. Additionally, with new technologies being developed daily and available almost as quickly, there is truly no end in sight as to where the Eastern Area can go.
While collectively we have many visions for where to lead the Eastern Area, our main focus is Programming, the heart of The Links, Incorporated. It is our goal to continue to support and promote meaningful and measurable community service initiatives while balancing new programs with those already firmly established by The Links, Incorporated, past Eastern Area administrations, and the Chapters themselves. Since our inception, the Links organization has addressed community service through a threefold purpose in the areas of educational, civic, and intercultural commitments using program facets. These five program facets: Services to Youth, The Arts, National Trends & Services, International Trends & Services, and Health and Human Services, allow us to organize and strategically focus our efforts to make the greatest impact on our communities possible.
In order to accomplish our goals, we need help from outside entities. We need the assistance of businesses, companies, and corporations willing to work alongside an organization such as ours which has a proven track record of almost seven decades of working tirelessly to develop, sustain, and enrich the communities in which we are all a part of.
We are ready, willing, and able to work alongside whomever is ready to stand with the Eastern Area of The Links, Incorporated in its steadfast commitment to Service and Sisterhood. We welcome you as our partners and friends. If you are interested in learning more about us as an organization or are ready to jump right in and collaborate with us in helping our communities, please click the below “Contact Us” link and send us your information. As Director, I invite you to be a part of the amazing things we are accomplishing and join the Eastern Area of The Links, Incorporated in being “United by Our Friendship and Our Commitment to Serve Our Communities.” You’ve taken the first step by visiting our website, why don’t you take one more step and join us!
