GFWC-GFWC Florida

When you become a member of the High Springs New Century Woman's Club you are automatically a member of our national and state organizations.

GFWC     

 

 

 

The General Federation of Women’s Clubs is an international women’s organization dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service.

 

GFWC’s emblem depicts a circular band signifying eternity. In the center of the circular band, the crusader's shield emerges from a darkened world (represented by the field of darkness), which represents enlightenment. The enameled colors—red, white, and blue—are the colors of the United States of America. The red implies courage, the white equals purity, and the blue stands for constancy.

With over 80,000 members in affiliated clubs in every state, the District of Columbia, and more than a dozen countries, GFWC members work in their own communities to support the arts, preserve natural resources, advance education, promote healthy lifestyles, encourage civic involvement, and work toward world peace and understanding.

GFWC Florida

Our purpose is to promote and provide civic, educational and charitable activities…we are dedicated to community improvement through volunteer service.

GFWC Florida is excited to join with partner Operation Smile for the 2018-2020 administration.

GFWC Florida President Sharon Oliphant has chosen “Smiles Across the Miles” as her theme for the next two years. During this time a fundraising goal of $250,000 has been set. In order to accomplish this goal, GFWC Florida clubs will be asked to assist with awareness and projects to share Operation Smile. A surgery cost of $240.00—and with that, a cleft palate or lip can be repaired with no cost to the recipient or family.

A GFWC Florida sponsored mission trip with a few lucky participants will be organized for 2020.

Through this project our GFWC Florida President Project Chairman Mary Jacobs will be able to assist with any updates and roles that you as a club member can be a part of. Contact her at MTJ215@gmail.com
