GFWC Mechanicsburg is currently working on the GFWC Pennsylvania President's Project "Vision Impairment Awareness". The project encourages the GFWC Pennsylvania women to  1. Increase awareness of causes, prevention, corrections and resources for vision impairment in children and adults.

2. Learn about local vision impairment resources through the Pennsylvania Association for the Blind.

3. Become active with a local agency for the blind.

4. Donate eyeglasses to the Lions Club collection project.

    Contact Joellen Zitch at 717-829-1772 for more information.


Upcoming Events:

GFWC Mechanicsburg Project for Speranza Animal Rescue

We have the following request from the Speranza Animal Rescue:

Speranza receives blankets, bedspreads and towels for the dogs to have in their pens.  Towels can be washed, but the bedspreads and some blankets are too large for their laundry and after one use, the items have to tossed.

They are asking if we would take the clean bedspreads and blankets when they come in and cut them down to a size that fits in the laundry.  Three or four pieces depending on the size of the donation.  We would have to sew the edges so the stuffing does not come out.

This can be an ongoing project for our club or a one-time effort.

If we participate in this service project, we would be featured on their website with pictures and praise.  Speranza is now nationwide so we would be reaching local and more.  This would be good advertisement for GFWC Mechanicsburg.

Shirley Barnes will chair this project.
