Mississippi Devastation from the Recent Tornados
March 28, 2023
Message from Theresa Buntyn, GFWC Mississippi State President
I am sharing some thoughts that would help the needs in Mississippi. We appreciate the members of GFWC for reaching out to help us. Here are some ideas from our Northern District Ladies and our State Federation.
You may send gift cards or monetary donations to Becky Watkins, MFWC Treasurer at PO Box 749, Quitman, MS 39355. Or, you can donate via MFWC Venmo Account.
Becky, MFWC Treasurer, and I will distribute monetary funds to the needed communities that were hit hard, Rolling Fork, Cleveland area, and smaller communities that have been hit very hard and need our support. Egypt Road and Wren Road areas are in most need that we are currently aware of, but of course, there are more.
Another place to donate to: Eight Days of Hope, which also provides support, P.O. Box 3208 Tupelo, MS 38803. T: (662) 844-6934 or Email: email@example.com
When it comes to membership presentations, GFWC Missouri State Membership Chairman Lisa Cook isn’t afraid to don an apron to present an unforgettable “recipe for membership” skit.
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 Lawrence Classics Club
The GFWC Lawrence Classics Club (Kansas) has 19 members, and it’s an incredible mixture: one charter member has been involved since 1997; one member has been part of GFWC since 1960; there are a mother and daughter pair who are 2nd and 3rd generation clubwomen; four members are Boosters; and their youngest member only graduated from college last year. This assorted group shares the same values about volunteerism and puts them into action.
