BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - Jeh Jeh joined us live from Oxmoor Valley Community Center to talk about a very special event. Women Under Construction Network will host an event called Building Hope: 21 Days of Kindness.

Building Hope: 21 Days of Kindness is a surge of 1021 planned and random acts of kindness throughout Birmingham and Central Alabama for 21 days to mitigate and ease the emotional, physical, and financial losses experienced during the pandemic.

Building Hope: 21 Days of Kindness is a human service/awareness campaign to raise funds for underserved women, children and the elderly served by the WUCNetwork.

WHO is Women Under Construction Network (WUCNetwork)?
