PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- CBS3 continues to celebrate Women's History Month. Eyewitness News was at the Big Picture Philadelphia school for a check presentation from a local women's organization on Friday.

100 Women of Philadelphia donated $12,000 that will go toward internship programs at the school, which provides hands-on job training.

"What better thing could we do as 100 Women than to give to an organization that is helping more people go out and better the world," Elizabeth Zack said. "It's this ripple of positivity."

"When I went in there, we all had the same mindset, we all had the same goals," Cianiliz Ruiz said. "All of the teachers had the same plan for us and that's to help us graduate and find her a career."
