This club year, St. Andrews Woman’s Club will celebrate 60 years of improving our community through volunteering and being a member of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs, an organization of over 80,000 women around the world. A common thread for all members is the friendships formed while working to improve the lives of others, not only in our local communities, but globally.
Last club year, our club volunteered 1,918 hours, donated $19,538 in direct and in-kind donations, through 65 projects. We focused on new projects to spark new interests while continuing to support favorite projects. Some of the new projects included the Little Library Box at the Irmo Park, care packages for military mothers with babies in the NICU, Leo’s Landing Inclusive Park, baby blankets for March of Dimes, and Children’s Trust of SC. We continued to support Operation Smile, food pantries, scholarships, garden and park cleanup, and so much more.
I’m looking forward to working with each of you this year and watching our club friendships grow. Remember, you are a member of GFWC, Girl Friends Who Care.
