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/

As both the President of the Mesquite Club (Nevada) for 2016-2017, as well as a 2016 LEADS candidate, she quickly learned the value of making connections in order to bring positive change to the world.
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.
