Major events each year for the Jr Woman’s Club include the Duncan Hines Festival, Hangover Classic 5K, and Coats for Kids. In addition to these, we also have monthly service projects and social events. Our service projects support prevention of domestic violence, child abuse, hunger and poverty. They also promote education, public issues, conservation, and arts in our community. Below are club stats from 2016:
And further, during 2016, the Club donated time, meals, and service (excluding Duncan Hines Festival and Hangover Classic recipients) to over 24 worthy events and 19 different charities, including: Big Brothers Big Sisters, CASA, Crimestoppers, Family Enrichment Center, Kids on the Block, BRASS, HOTEL Inc., Salvation Army, MADD, etc.
In 2017, we are joining in fun events like Bowl for Kid's Sake, Spellabration, and the FEC Run & Walk for Children. We plan to give to more than 15 different charities. Those will include: Haven4Change, Ronald McDonald House, Community Action, Girl Scouts, Dream Factory, and Junior Achievement (in addition to some of those listed above).
Typical service projects include serving meals at Salvation Army, picking up garbage along major highways, collecting clothes for victims of domestic violence, serving meals for HOTEL Inc, and donating non-perishable foods to Red Cross, Salvation Army and HOTEL Inc. This is just a small list of everything we do for the community and we are always open to new ways to help others.
