Community

NEW YORK (WPRI) — A mother of three from Chicago who helps secure food and other necessities for those in need has been named “Woman of the Year” as part of Nexstar Media’s Remarkable Women campaign.

Archana Liggins was one of more than 10,000 nominees from across the country.

The initiative was launched to honor women who inspire, lead, and pave the way for other women to succeed and celebrate their contributions to their communities.

Liggins asked Nexstar to donate her $5,000 prize to the nonprofit she founded, BAG Lady Outreach, so she can continue helping people in need.
