Read for the Record
September 25, 2017
Pat Zimmerman, President of GFWC Iowa Solon Women’s Club, has participated in Jumpstart’s Read for the Record campaign for the past ten years, reading to children in preschool, kindergarten, and first grade to inspire an early love of books.
She likes to print out participation certificates with her witness signature at the bottom so the children can celebrate their contribution to the effort to set a new world reading record, which Jumpstart first broke in 2013.
Pat knows literacy and reading are important causes to GFWC clubwomen, so she encourages them to register to read in classrooms in their communities. This year’s event is on October 19th. Click here to learn more and register: https://www.jstart.org/read-for-the-record/
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.

The GFWC Woman’s Club of Westminster (Maryland) has an annual project that corresponds with one of International President Brock's Seven Grand Initiatives. Every year the club partners with Penguin Random House, one of the area’s publishing houses and distributor of books, to celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday.
