New Comment Feature on GFWC Blog
October 24, 2019
GFWC strives to create opportunities for its members to share information and learn from each other’s successes with projects, programs, and leadership. One way is through the GFWC Blog, which posts a collection of Volunteers in Action stories that celebrate the accomplishments of individual members, clubs, Districts, states, or Regions across the Federation weekly. Comments and congratulations can be posted at the bottom of each post in response to member news about a variety of topics, including successful service projects and events, awards and honors, groundbreaking initiatives, community partnerships, and more.
Visit the GFWC Blog now. We look forward to seeing your comments!

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.
