South Carolina’s Junior Woman Clubs have a long-standing history of serving our communities. Over the years we’ve placed a special emphasis on advocating for the health and safety of children and youth.
In our various communities, we are all neighbors to someone, whether they’re right next door or miles down a dirt road. Over the next two years, GFWC-SC will strive to incorporate random acts of kindness in our communities, with a special emphasis on literacy and financial literacy for our youth.
If you would like to know how you and your clubs can become neighbors who care, gauge your volunteer efforts by implementing the C.A.R.E.
C - collaborate
A - advocate
R - relate
E - educate
All club efforts and projects that fit this criterion should be reported under The Director of Junior Club’s Special Project “Neighbors Who Care” for an opportunity to be awarded in the following categories.
Gabrielle’s Youth Literacy Award
Awarded to the club that best displays random acts of kindness toward literacy advancement in our youth. (This includes financial literacy)
Polly’s Good Neighbor Award
Awarded to the club that best displays random acts of kindness in the community
Neighborly Love Award
Awarded to clubs that use collaborative efforts in their participation in the Director of Junior Clubs Special Project, Neighbors Who Care.
I look forward to spending the next two years making our neighborhoods and communities better and brighter.
