GFWC Junior Women’s Club of Lake Murray
The GFWC Junior Women’s Club of Lake Murray (South Carolina) aims to improve the Lake Murray area through various hands-on projects. Each month holds new and exciting volunteer opportunities, such as helping at a local children’s shelter, packing Snack Packs for area schools, and adopting a family for Christmas.
Founded in 2012, the club’s 37 members are actively involved in making a positive difference in the lives of others.
“Apart from making some wonderful friends and spending time volunteering, I’ve gained valuable leadership skills and met some incredible community leaders.”
Sarah Bonner, president of the Junior Women’s Club of Lake Murray, joined the club to make new friends and to help improve her community, but says she has gained so much more.
“Apart from making some wonderful friends and spending time volunteering, I’ve gained valuable leadership skills and met some incredible community leaders,” Sarah said. “I’ve also learned that no matter how big or small the task, taking the time to serve others is one of the greatest expressions of love and kindness we can offer.”
Karyn McCarthy is a club-building machine. She has already helped form five successful GFWC Illinois clubs. How does she do it? A seemingly inexhaustible supply of energy certainly helps.
