Volunteers in Action: GFWC Women’s Club of South Country (RI) and GFWC Women’s Club of Farmingdale (NY)
August 8, 2023
Despite the soaring summer temps, dedicated members of the GFWC Women’s Club of South Country (RI) showed up for their club. Members participated in the club’s quarterly roadside cleanup along Ocean Road in Narragansett. As part of their “Adopt a Roadway” program they help keep roadways clean and safe.
On Tuesday, August 1, 2023, members of the Women’s Club of Farmingdale (WCF) under the leadership of Welfare Committee Chair, Rosemary Emigholz, and together with Deacon Bill (St. Kilian’s Parish) and community resident, Pat, met with Jeana Lewis, Director of St. Kilian’s Outreach Center, to donate gift cards totaling $575. This annual WCF summer program donation will be used by middle and high school students from the Farmingdale School District to purchase necessary school supplies.
