2021 Community Projects
Clubwomen combine helping others with recyclying by weaving mats from plastic bags. The mats are then provided to the homeless in our community through a collaboration with The Salvation Army.
Prayer Shawl Ministry
In collaboration with Ss. Peter and Paul the Apostles Catholic Church, clubwomen pray over the shawls they crochet and pray for the female patient that will be receiving the shawl.
Christmas Angel Tree
In collaboration with The Salvation Army, clubwomen adopted a child and provided clothing & toys as Christmas gifts.
Alzheimer's Fidget Quilts
Clubwomen donated fidget quilts to Alzheimer's patients at Westminster Manor. A fidget quilt is a lap-size activity quilt with different textured fabrics, embellished with assorted "fidget" items to stimulate their senses.
Kicks for Kids
Clubwomen purchased new shoes that were donated to children in foster care through Safe Children Coalition. This project was in support of GFWC Florida Juniors #KicksForKidsChallenge.
Bookmarks to encourage reading
Clubwomen painted and colored 400+ bookmarks that were donated to a local elementary school. The bookmark message and character were designed by the club president.
Rita B. Deer says, "Read a book, dear!"
Keep Manatee Avenue Beautiful
There are many ways to serve the community and the work isn't always glamorous, but clubwomen chip in every quarter to pick up trash for the "Keep Manatee Avenue Beautiful" initiative.
Love, Respect & Kindness is the message of GFWC Florida. Clubwomen were thrilled to paint encouraging messages on rocks that were placed in random areas around our community to help others have a good day and know they are being thought of.
