Volunteers in Action: GFWC Sedley Woman’s Club (VA) & GFWC Southwest Region Woman’s Club (CO)
October 3, 2023
The GFWC Sedley Woman’s Club participated in the GFWC National Day of Service by volunteering at the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia. Members sorted food donations, stocked shelves, and assembled boxes. They took a tour of the facilities to learn about the foodbank feeds Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore.
GFWC Southwest Region Woman’s Club (SRWC) volunteered at the Benefits in Action food warehouse in Lakewood, Colorado for the National Day of Service. They packed 220 boxes, equalling 4,360 pounds of food to be delivered to 220 households. These boxes are distributed to low-income families, seniors, medically fragile, and those without access to local food banks.

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.
Mesquite Club, Inc.
The Mesquite Club, Inc., located in Las Vegas, Nevada, started out the club year with 120 members and now has 132 members. How has the club gained a dozen new members over such a short time? One reason is Club President Cherie Williams’ commitment to raising public awareness of the club in any way possible.
