Oh, What a Wonderful Holiday Open House!
December 23, 2020
Hosting the 2021 Holiday House remotely did not dim the sparkle at GFWC Headquarters on December 16. Inspired by the 2020 holiday theme, What a Wonderful World, the home’s entry and entertainment areas featured a sparkling winter wonderland accented with woodland wildlife. Two majestic Christmas trees twinkled brightly with silver and gold, and many State Federations added to the holiday magic by donating an ornament or two for the tree. Watch the parade of ornaments video.
If there is time in the day to lend a helping hand, Irene Iverson will do it. A member of two GFWC clubs and recent honoree of the One OC Spirit of Volunteerism Award for 2014, Irene has been an active leader in her community since she joined the Red Cross as a volunteer at 15.
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 Marlton Woman’s Club
The GFWC Marlton Woman’s Club (New Jersey) has 41 members who are always trying to put a smile on the faces of others. President Lisa Levin said, “My goal has always been to work together as a club, making our members shine, and making a significant difference in the lives of others.” She also encourages leadership and engagement by motivating members to be a chairperson or to be part of a committee.
