Where there’s thirst, there’s need. We reach out to communities, both locally and abroad. In keeping with the guidelines from the General Federation of Women's Clubs, we concentrate our efforts in the following Community Service areas and Special Projects:
Art - which includes art in the community, photography, support of museums and theaters, and crafts.
Conservation - which includes beautification (Penny Pines and gardens), conservation (recycling), wildlife protection, proper care for domesticated animals (Blankets of Love) and tree planting.
Education - which includes literacy for adults and children (tutoring, support of libraries), and lifelong learning (scholarships, support for local schools and libraries).
Home Life - which includes those activities that focus on the well-being of individuals, families and communities. This includes work for food pantries, homeless shelters, hospitals, cancer support and services for the handicapped.
International Outreach - which includes ways to reach beyond our own communities and consider how we can make a global impact through TUBFIRM (postage stamps, used eyeglasses (go to third world countries), and support of an African family.
Public Affairs - which includes activities designed to connect members with projects relating to civic engagement focusing on Citizenship (Chamber of Commerce, S.O.L.I.D., Devonshire Pals), Veterans Affairs (coupons for military families, For the Troops), Emergency Preparedness, and Safety, both at home and in the community.
Domestic Violence Awareness. The General Federation of Women's Clubs is a national leader in the fight to end domestic violence by raising awareness of this social issue and helping those who are the victims. In the local area, we support Haven Hills and Alexandria House (domestic violence shelters) and the Center for Assault Treatment Services (C.A.T.S.).
Advocacy for Children. This special project is designed to education, advocate and engage in projects concerning the well-being of children via health, social and safety programs.
