Clubwomen Everywhere Plant Trees Today
April 30, 2021
Today is the national observance of Arbor Day, and GFWC has encouraged clubwomen throughout the Federation to plant trees in their communities. It is widely reported by scientists that trees help slow climate change by removing carbon dioxide from the air and releasing oxygen into the atmosphere. Join GFWC in organizing projects to replace our lost trees today–or any day–by reading yesterday’s News & Notes.
Heidi is both a shining example and inspired advocate of the belief in meaningful volunteering.
Success For Survivors Scholarship
Each year, GFWC awards scholarships to help intimate partner abuse survivors obtain a post-secondary education that offers a chance to reshape their future by securing employment and gaining personal independence.
GFWC Millington Junior Women's Club
Each year April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Kathleen Sweeney, Executive Director/Forensic Interviewer of The Child Advocacy Center of Tuscola County (CACTC), spoke at GFWC Millington Junior Women's Club (Michigan) monthly meeting and told members that 10% of the 235 reported cases of child abuse in 2017 in Tuscola County were from Millington Township, including Millington. It inspired them to take action with the "Color Me Blue" Project.
