First “President’s Pick” From GFWC Blog Announced
January 15, 2021
The first club project designated as a “President’s Pick” for its individual merit, plus its adaptability for use by other clubs, has been announced! Congratulations to the Woman’s Club of Coconut Grove for building a community network of like-minded individuals and organizations for an effective campaign. The mission of the Plastics-Free Initiative Coalition, founded by the Woman’s Club of Coconut Grove in 2018-2019, is “To eliminate/minimize/ban single-use plastics and to promote awareness of the damage caused by single-use plastics.” The club’s new Coalition website is invaluable to this aim.
On January 7, GFWC announced the President’s Pick Contest to encourage clubs throughout the Federation to share their success stories. GFWC’s Blog is the premier place to read results-based success stories about how clubs are serving their communities, Districts, State Federations, or Regions.
MaryAnn shares her passion for volunteerism with young people through her work with the Massachusetts Youth Leadership Foundation.
