Tonight I would like to say something about what I am doing tomorrow. I suppose you are thinking that I am probably going to another writers’ conference. But no. Tomorrow is a day away from writing my new book. Tomorrow, I will be atending the GFWC State convention/Conference in Orlando, Fl.
GFWC is the Greater Federation of Women’s Clubs. It is a national organization of women’s clubs whose mission is to raise money for local charities. Each club, and there are many, raise money by gift wrapping during the Holiday season, or organizing hugh Bunco Parties, or Fashion Shows etc, etc, etc. Each club sponsors special events to raise cash to give away. To whom you may ask. GFWC donates funds to Hacienda Ranch for Girls , (a safe place for girls who cannot live at home for one reason or another), Canine Companions (a group that trains and provides companion dogs to the disabled), Veterans on the Water (a recreational group for veterans), and scholarsrship money to local high school students among other worthy causes.
GFWC members also donate time to clean up trash along local streets, sew blankets for hospitalized children, little dresses for Africa and Hearts out to Haiti, Smile Bags and heart pillows for patients after surgery.
I am proud to say that I am a member of GFWC in Melbourne, Fl and encourage you to become a member and/or support your local club with donations or time.Thank you.
