CIVIC ENGAGEMENT AND OUTREACH
The GFWC Civic Engagement and Outreach Community Service Program reminds GFWC members that each of us is a part of a larger society and is responsible for undertaking actions that will create a better quality of life and foster a sense of community—locally, regionally, nationally, and globally. This Community Service Program highlights and encourages citizenship; crime prevention, safety, and disaster preparedness; the needy, hungry, and homeless; and our military personnel and veterans.
The club's past initiatives include a community-wide program on human trafficking, a bike safety and maintenance program, annual collections for Stocking for Soldiers-Delaware, and financial support for USO Delaware and the Home of the Brave Foundation.
The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th amendment granting women the right to vote. Z Club will celebrate this milestone in a variety of ways and is learning more about the suffragettes who fought for this right. Z Club members were invited to participate in the Zwaanendael Museum's 22nd Annual Chautauqua Tent Show that takes place on September 11. Members will present profiles of notable women who worked towards suffrage.
