Volunteers in Action: Woman’s Club of Parsippany-Troy Hills & GFWC Michigan

April 6, 2023

The Woman’s Club of Parsippany-Troy Hills is showcasing their club and numerous volunteer projects at the Parsippany Library in New Jersey. Co-Membership Chairmen Janice Carruba and Ginny Scala collected photos and memorabilia from fellow clubwomen for the display. Their projects include literacy outreach, food assistance and raising awareness of child abuse.

On Sunday, April 2, fourteen GFWC clubwomen from Michigan, during their visit to headquarters, planted blue pinwheels in recognition of Child Abuse Prevention Month.

Every year the GFWC Pierce Arrows purchase the pinwheels to help raise public awareness on child abuse. The clubwomen from Michigan planted dozens of blue pinwheels in support of this worthy cause. The GFWC District of Columbia club will help keep the display looking tidy and replenished all April long.

National Child Abuse Prevention Month is an opportunity to take bold action to better support parents and caregivers with access to resources to cope during challenging times.
