May 9, 2023
The Evening Chapter of the GFWC Mesquite Club of Las Vegas (NV) gathered household items for the U.S. Vets Betterment Community Housing Project. 20 Housewarming Baskets were provided to assist with the transition of Veterans from temporary to permanent apartment living. The baskets contained various items including paper goods, cleaning supplies, coffee pots, blankets, kitchen tools and the club’s cookbook. $1045.50 worth of items were provided by the efforts of the membership.

When it comes to membership presentations, GFWC Missouri State Membership Chairman Lisa Cook isn’t afraid to don an apron to present an unforgettable “recipe for membership” skit.
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 Lawrence Classics Club
The GFWC Lawrence Classics Club (Kansas) has 19 members, and it’s an incredible mixture: one charter member has been involved since 1997; one member has been part of GFWC since 1960; there are a mother and daughter pair who are 2nd and 3rd generation clubwomen; four members are Boosters; and their youngest member only graduated from college last year. This assorted group shares the same values about volunteerism and puts them into action.
