GFWC High Springs New Century Woman’s Club
Members from the GFWC High Springs New Century Woman’s Club of District 5 in Florida visited Partnership for Strong Families to present them with 24 “Birthday Bags.” They were thoughtfully made by the club to be distributed to children in foster care and families that are receiving support from the organization. The bags contained everything for a birthday party including: hats, balloons, table decorations, toys, and prizes. It wouldn’t be a party without a cake, so cake mixes, icing, and candles were also included! Some of the birthday bags are used by caseworkers to encourage families to spend quality time with their children.
Growing up in Virginia, Barbara Barnes was always one to support her community, and when the opportunity to join GFWC presented itself, she knew it was the right step for her.
Success For Survivors Scholarship

Junior Woman's Club of State College
When Robbin Zirkle moved back to the area after grad school, she addressed the challenge many people face as adults—making new friends— by joining the Junior Woman’s Club of State College (Pennsylvania). GFWC provided her a place to connect with like-minded women who shared her passion for community service.
