Some of the members of SWC spent a Friday afternoon volunteering at Out of the Garden. They helped to sort the bread and had fun doing it together. This was their way to help with the Food Reclamation Initiative which helps to reclaim more than 200,000 pounds of food annually. The food comes from local grocery stores and businesses and is redistributed to local children and their families.
Thank you ladies for making a difference in our community!
WOMEN MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Sedgefield Woman's Club's volunteer efforts center on 5 community service programs as well as 3 annual fundraisers. The impact of Sedgefield Woman's Club reaches local, state, national and international levels of need.
The collaborative effort of our 5 CSP's - "Shred & Share" - was a decisive success...the weather was beautiful and turnout was incredible - 5000lbs was shredded = half of the truck was filled! There was an awesome collection of Books, and even more so of Food (763 pounds) plus CASH ( ~ $250 ) for the David Wilson Food Bank of Lutheran Church of Our Father. Increased advertising certainly added to the success of the event, and we appreciate the efforts of many to spread the word using the beautifully created posters and street signs. It was amazing to see all of the various committee members working together for a common community event - and having fun all the while!
A huge "thank you" to all our members who planned and worked at today's event, as well as to all our members who brought items to shred and /or donated books, food, and money!
