Read Across America - March 2, 2021
We held an interactive ZOOM reading of a Dr. Seuss book with elementary school students. Six classrooms and 190 students participated. And through a partnership with Links-to-Libraries each child was also given book of their own to keep.
We collected 745 cards or card fronts for
St. Jude’s Ranch for Children in Nevada.
2021 GFWC Juniors' Special Program
We made masks for special needs students. The masks were attached to lanyards so the children wouldn't lose them at recess!
After learning of the need for soap and shampoo for students experiencing transition due to crises, members collected hygiene items and sewed cloth bags to make portable kits. Each kit contains travel size soap, shampoo, deodorant, toothbrush and toothpaste and a comb. Kits are distributed by middle school nurses to students reporting a need.
2021 GFWC Signature Program
We are working with local organizations to apply for grants to support their efforts to address domestic and sexual violence.
We are also working with GFWC Massachusetts to raise money to support the grant program.
In January 2022 we were awarded the grant we applied for on behalf of the local YWCA.
