Carroll County Community Spotlight: July GFWC Junior Woman’s Club of Westminster
12 June 2018 Non-Profit Spotlight
The GFWC Junior Woman’s Club of Westminster, MD is an organization of women who come together to support their community by combining their talents to help others for a charitable purpose while growing personally. We strive to help the community through projects such as: hosting National Night Out at Dutterer’s Park, co-hosting a 5K fundraiser for the Domestic Violence program of Carroll County, collecting books and supplies for children in need, hosting a youth art contest, awarding college scholarships to local students, making blankets and comfort bags for breast cancer patients, and much more! Our club meetings take place the second Thursday of each month at St. Paul’s United Church of Christ in Westminster at 7 pm, preceded by social time (and food!) at 6:30 pm.
GFWC club women are true volunteers in action—in 2010, our members raised nearly $40 million doing more than 185,000 projects, volunteering more than 8 million hours in the communities where they live and work.
More than 100,000 members in affiliated clubs in every state and more than a dozen countries work in their own communities to support the arts, preserve natural resources, advance education, promote healthy lifestyles, encourage civic involvement, and work toward world peace and understanding.
GFWC clubs work in six main Community Service Program Areas. In addition to these core areas, GFWC also fosters special projects and programs on a variety of issues.
