Press Release-February 2024

Responding to sustained growth in membership and community awareness, Paso Robles now boasts an active sisterhood of two complementary chapters of P.E.O. – Philanthropic Educational Organization — working towards a common goal through fundraising to provide educational opportunities and emergency financial assistance to women locally.  Chapter HL, which was established in 1992, meets the second Wednesday of the month at 10 AM and has helped 68 women with awards totaling over $157,200 in financial support since 2002, while the new Chapter YD, established February 2024, meets monthly on the third Wednesday at 5:30 PM.  The P.E.O. Paso Robles chapters award grants and scholarships to women based on achievement and need, and importantly also assist candidates to apply for local, California and P.E.O. International loans, grants and scholarship programs.  Membership in P.E.O. is open to women 18 years and older.
