The Links Give Back to Little Rock Community

The Llinks Inc. holding its Central Area Conference in Little Rock this week.

More than 600 women are here not just for business, but for a lot of community service.

"We have 276 chapters throughout 41 states, District of Columbia and the Bahamas," said Alice Strong-Simmons, Area Director.

The links,  which means to a lot of the women, linked in friendship, focus on five areas, the Art Services to Youth, National/International Trends and Health and Human Services.

"We have converged on Little Rock to take care of business, but also to do several outreach programs, we are going to do an oral health screening for over 300 children tomorrow in the Dunbar Community Center," added Strong-Simmons.

Saturday there will be a walk, Link With a Child, Walk a Mile, in support of the Links childhood obesity program.

Service and sisterhood is what has kept President Deborah Frazier's attention for 19 years.

"The way that these women got together and gave back to the community in a collective friendship sort of way, the way they bonded, and identified needs and worked on those needs," said Frazier.

A group of friends, more like sisters leaving their footprint on communities across the United States.

The market for shopping hosted by the Links will be open to the public Saturday, June 15th.

You can find it at the State House Convention Center on the first and second floors.
