The GFWC Jennie Award honors one Club Woman from each GFWC region for outstanding commitment to Club, Community and Family.
They are chosen by their clubs to compete at state, region, and national levels for the Federation’s highest honor.
In addition to the below details, your club chairman Nancy Greenberg has provided many new articles about Public Issues. Please go to Community Service -> Public Issues to read them all.
Clubs may seek volunteering opportunities at all veteran facilities in our state: Manchester, Wilton and White River Junction. The Manchester VA is always in need of 70 in. round vinyl tablecloths with flannel backing. These lend a cheerfulness to the room where meals and activities take place.
Veterans living in homeless facilities are always in need of personal hygiene items, books, decorations such as Quilts of Valor (red, white and blue hand-made quilts) Americana decorations, and clothing items. GFWC-NH Nashaway Women’s Club donated $5000.00 in 2014 to the Harbor Homes Foundation for homeless veterans in Nashua, NH. The Hudson Jrs donated personal hygiene packages and sheets – also to Harbor Homes.
Clubs can promote legislation in support of veterans’ needs, including substance abuse, mental health counseling, housing and jobs.
CITIZENSHIP: Many of our GFWC-NH clubs share the rights of citizenship while working at the polls. Many bake refreshments and hold bake sales at polling places. Others count ballots. NH clubwomen have always been a strong legislative force in our NH legislature. Did you know that Annette Cooke, a member of the GFWC-NH Salem Women’s Club, a NH Representative, sponsored the Good Samaritan Bill, a bill that guarantees safety from frivolous lawsuits if someone acts in good faith while volunteering.
· Let neighbors and friends know, “GFWC-NH Members VOTE!”
· Clubs may help those seeking citizenship to study for the U.S. Citizenship Test.
· Members may promote patriotism, the study of our American heritage, American symbols and flag etiquette at schools, club meetings and organizations such as girl and boy scouts.
· Encourage qualified women to seek elected or appointed office.
