GFWC clubs throughout the Federation are very active in their communities this month, participating in several important community service efforts this February.

Educating children about the important role that dental health plays in overall health.
February is Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month, National Library Lover’s Month, and National Children’s Dental Health Month. GFWC is proud of its clubs for their continued commitment to domestic and sexual violence awareness and prevention, health and wellness, and furthering education.
Growing up, Sandi Brill’s parents always demonstrated the importance of giving back to the community through volunteer work. Today, this dedication to serving others continues to be a significant part of Sandi’s life.
