Volunteers in Action: GFWC Service Guild of Covington; GFWC Morehead Woman’s Club
October 10, 2018
We always have Volunteers in Action to showcase because GFWC clubs are constantly on the move, planning new ways to improve their community and executing it with wonderful results. We treasure the opportunity to share events and projects that clubs do, so if you have something to share, send it to PR@GFWC.org for the chance to be featured on our blog. In the meantime, check out some of these great ideas!
In accordance with the 2018-2020 Administration’s Seven Grand Initiatives, members of the GFWC Service Guild of Covington (Georgia) donated Dr. Seuss books at their September meeting. Clubs like them are helping GFWC meet its goal for members to donate 1,000 Dr. Seuss books by March of 2020!
Between volunteer projects, clubs often take action in a different way— with membership events to attract more volunteers! Members of the GFWC Morehead Woman’s Club (Kentucky) held a Dress for a Mess Door Hanger Paint Party as a membership event. Attendees enjoyed the craft and plenty of food. The event proved to be a success with 12 of 13 attendees joining the club!

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 Woman's Club of Westminster
The GFWC Woman’s Club of Westminster (Maryland) has an annual project that corresponds with one of International President Brock's Seven Grand Initiatives. Every year the club partners with Penguin Random House, one of the area’s publishing houses and distributor of books, to celebrate Dr. Seuss' birthday.
