Volunteers in Action: Frederick Woman’s Civic Club and Poplarville Woman’s Club

February 14, 2023

The Poplarville Woman’s Club (Mississippi) donated bras and other items, supplied by I Support the Girls, to nine different shelters and other organizations in recognition of Human Trafficking Month (January). The club also viewed webinars from the Blue Campaign, and at their January 2023 meeting listened to a presentation by a speaker from the The Center for Violence Prevention in Pearl, MS, the only shelter in the state dedicated to serving human trafficking victims.

As part of an ongoing effort led by the Evening Group members, women of the Frederick Woman’s Civic Club Inc. (Maryland) gathered on January 19th, 2023 to sew “capes for kids” for children served by the Children of Incarcerated Parents Partnership (COIPP) and the Child Advocacy Center of Frederick County, Maryland. The capes are intended to help children through times of trauma and stress and symbolize strength and bravery. Nearly 60 capes over the past several months have been made, and more sewing sessions are planned.
