Group Turns Tragedy to Triumph Based on 9/11

All-woman Heartworks group celebrating four years of activity Wednesday.

It’s been said that out of tragedy comes triumph, and there is no greater example of that then what came from the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001.

Heartworks, a non-profit all-woman organization with chapters along the east coast, was inspired by the outpouring of goodwill in the days and weeks following that tragic day in 2001, according to a press release from the group.

“In an effort to keep the generosity and sincerity alive, Heartworks provides a means for women to reach out to those in their community going through loss, trauma or struggle,” the release said.

Locally, will be celebrating its fourth anniversary on Sept. 12, and encourages area women to join them at the on West Mill Road at 7 p.m.

Heartworks is known as an “acts of kindness” group that meets monthly to “encourage each other, nourish ourselves spiritually, and find opportunities to help the community,” the release said.
