Volunteers in Action: GFWC Paradise Valley Junior Woman’s Club (AZ) & GFWC Tuesday Club of Columbia (MO)
December 6, 2023
The GFWC Paradise Valley Junior Woman’s Club participated in the 2023 Walk to End Alzheimer’s held November 4, 2023 in Phoenix, AZ. They became interested in this cause after hearing information about the Alzheimer’s Association at the GFWC Convention in June 2023. A flyer was developed on how to donate to the team for club members to distribute and post on social media. It was also published in the club’s newsletter and posted on their website.
The club had 10 walkers on the team. Many donations were given by club members, family, and friends. The goal was to reach $1000 in donations and the club exceeded this goal by raising $1725. The team was honored by having a placard with “General Federation of Women’s Clubs” on the Honor Walk since they had raised $1000 for the cause.
The GFWC Tuesday Club of Columbia had multiple stages to their National Day of Service Project. They donated food and hygiene items to fourteen Blessing Boxes around their town. Then they partnered with the restaurant Chicken Salad Chick to make monetary donations to the regional food bank. On the National Day of Service, clubwomen volunteered their time at the food bank.
