Volunteers in Action: GFWC Woman’s Club of Denville-Rockaway; GFWC Fayette County ESO; White Mountain Woman’s Club
July 30, 2019
Eleven clubwomen from the GFWC Woman’s Club of Denville-Rockaway (New Jersey) visited the New-York Historical Society to see the Hudson Rising exhibit, a topic that was featured at GFWC’s 2019 Women’s History Month Event. It included a display about how New Jersey clubwomen took up the cause to help save the Palisades cliffs along the Hudson River. It’s great to know that New Jersey clubwomen got the chance to see and learn about their own legacy!
This week, the GFWC Fayette County ESO (Indiana) delivered 141 pair of shoes to the Cincinnati Soles4Souls storage facility!
Another club to participate in the Soles4Souls Grand Initiative is the White Mountain Woman’s Club (Arizona), who worked with friends, family, and neighbors to collect 123 pairs of shoes.
Keep up the great work for GFWC’s Cooperative Project with Soles4Souls!

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.
