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!
