GFWC Mechanicsburg is currently working on the GFWC Pennsylvania President's Project "Enrich, Educate, Empower--Every Child Every Day". The project encourages the GFWC Pennsylvania women to carry out projects to benefit the children of their community and/or of the world.
GFWC Mechanicsburg will work to provide food, supplies, funds, volunteer hours and other needs to support the health and welfare of children in their schools and communities.
Contact Carol Bogar at 717.697.8922 for more information.
At the January meeting did a service project: 14 blankets for made Project Linus. These blankets will be taken to the GFWC PA convention in May to be donated along with other clubs' donations. Also, Rhonda Hendrickson from the Harrisburg YWCA was present to accept our donation of 123 hats, mittens and scarfs.
