Thank you for supporting the 2018-2020 GFWC-NC President’s Special Project. We are so pleased to announce that we have made donations to the following organizations because of this effort. This opportunity to make a difference in the lives of women and children across North Carolina focuses on our goals of Healthy Women and Thriving Children.
Alamance Partnership for Children is a non-profit organization serving children and families in Alamance County. They administer Smart Start and NC Pre-Kindergarten funds, an early childhood initiative designed to ensure that young children enter school healthy and ready to succeed.
Alamance Regional Charitable Foundation – Pink Ribbon Fund. The Foundation is a well-known funding source for unmet medical needs in Alamance County. They target breast cancer, providing diagnostic procedures for mammograms for those who cannot afford them and breast cancer therapy essentials for women who have a malignancy. Breast cancer has touched all of us, and these funds will directly impact the health of women in the community.
Going Beyond the Pink is an educational and supportive resource to individuals and families affected by the life-threatening disease—breast cancer. The donation was made in honor of Joy Wade who is a program manager for “Going Beyond the Pink” and was a workshop speaker at the GFWC-NC Convention in Wilmington. So many charities need our support, now more than ever.
Harbor, Inc. is a shelter for victims of domestic violence in Johnston County. We are certain that this pandemic has increased the need for their services and hope we can make a difference. Since 1984, this Not-for-Profit organization has provided victims with a variety of services and programs to aid them to move beyond a life of violence to one that is violence free and encourages self-sufficiency.
Helene Foundation, located in Raleigh, is an organization created to honor Helene Davidian who was a nurse and mother with cancer. They support women and their families with a vast array of services from picking up groceries, cleaning houses, babysitting, driving to appointments, and beyond. Their support is amazing.
Novant Health Foundation – Breast Health Fund is built on a foundation of community outreach and partnerships with businesses. The Brunswick Medical Center’s mobile mammography coach has significantly increased the number of women in Brunswick County receiving mammograms, so we are providing additional assistance to this GFWC-NC Convention Partner.
Parkview Community Foundation, Inc. Their mission is to help the children reach their individual full potential and to be prepared for life and adulthood. They provide children and youth with programs that are neighborhood centered, placing priority on the entire family’s economic and social well-being, and is based on a foundation of positive core values.
Safe Harbor, located in Hickory, NC, offers services to anyone with the capacity and willingness to participate fully and safely, regardless of race, color, nationality, or ethnic origin. Programs are co-ed and are for women and children in need of empowerment and support.
Donations were made in honor of all GFWC-NC Clubwomen, President Ann Landis, and the Executive Committee. Thank you again GFWC-NC. Your dedication and support are amazing!
