We are seeing so many successful and creative projects across the state that can be accomplished in the pandemic. This is great, because so many of our local communities are in need! We have been posting them on the GFWC-NC Facebook page, along with the newly released GFWC Top Ten Projects. As a state, NC received recognition for 9 GFWC Top Ten Projects! Congratulations to The Woman’s Club of Clayton (2), GFWC Fuquay-Varina Junior Woman’s Club, Junior Woman’s Club of Raleigh (2), GFWC of Holden Beach (2), GFWC Wake Forest High School Juniorette Club, and The Woman’s Club of Raleigh, Inc.
