Women United is an unstoppable network of women committed to improving the lives of children in Pickens County.

Through Women United, you will build connections with like-minded women, deepen your knowledge of community issues, and support children and early literacy through programs such as Preschool Pages.


Women United Preschool Pages is an initiative supporting the development of early literacy skills in preschoolers in Pickens County. You can support early literacy by donating books to the children attending programs at the six partner schools: Central Academy of the Arts, Crosswell Elementary, Hagood Elementary, McKissick Academy of Science and technology, Pickens Elementary and West End Elementary.

The annual Women United Luncheon for Literacy brings together women from across the community to enjoy an inspirational keynote speaker, network with like-minded women, and learn about the early literacy work that Women United members are doing across Pickens County.

The 2020 Luncheon for Literacy, scheduled for March 19, 2020, was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic. All sponsors and ticket holders should have received an email with additional information and are welcome to contact Jennifer Shurley, 864-850-7094 x104, with questions.
