African Refugee Food boxes with Model UN and other Refugee Support

Narrative Summary
Alvirne High School's Model UN President emailed us to ask whether we could help them organize a food drive for refugees from Africa. We provided a food list, stressing basic staples such as rice, sugar, salt, flour, juice, etc., and avoiding canned goods. We met the students after their drive and they had divided the donations into 12 boxes for the families. GFWC Hudson Women's Club members also donated to the drive and added some other often used basics such as peanut butter and juice and filled in missing items. One member met the group at the high school and brought them to a church which many of the African families attend. We lined up the boxes, and families picked up their boxes and carried them out on their heads! The drive was held later in the year than usual, so the students were somewhat disappointed, but they will try to get rolling a little bit earlier next year. Much other support was provided to refugees during the year, including driving to medical or job appointments, donating diapers, and providing used or new household goods such as large pots, dishes, and serving utensils, clothing (including hats, scarves, gloves, coats and capes, and new baby items), new and used blankets and comforters, and other things needed by these new arrivals to the U.S. When anyone is wondering where to donate used household items, they think of refugees first! We also presented a check to the Model UN Club for $200. We donated $105 to the Nashua Boys and Girls Club for three memberships for newly arrived refugee children. This membership provides transportation from school and then home, safety if parents are working, after-school activities, a meal and snack, homework help, and more English practice than they would get at home.

Each article focused on a victim or family of a victim of domestic violence.

The WCC does not typically have the funds for sponsoring other programs, but the WCC Board of Directors felt this was so important, that they raised the $500.00 needed for this sponsorship was through member donations.

Restoration of the Chamberlin House

Category
Narrative Summary
The WCC has the honor and responsibility of using the Chamberlin House for club meetings and events, and also to house three women in transition in bedrooms on the second floor of the house. The first floor is used for community and private gatherings. The house is supported primarily through rental fees, bequeaths, fund raising activities, and grants.
With the assistance of two Land and Community Improvement Program (LCHIP) grants the WCC was able to address structural issues related to very old houses such as rebuilding fireplaces, repairing the roof, re-framing original glass windows in the attic and other location in the house, upgrading electrical wiring, and painting the entire house. Through donations the interior of the house was brought up to date with new window treatments that are appropriate for the period. On 9/6/2019 a 125 year birthday party was held to introduce the restored house to the community and members.

The hours and costs below represent the work completed in 2019 including donated and purchased components of the 1st floor living room window treatments, not the work completed in previous years. The donated dollars include private donations and the 2019 portion of the LCHIP grant. In kind donations include donated fabric and labor for the drapes downstairs and in 2nd floor bedrooms.

Approximately 350 member hours were required to complete the project, 8 club members did the work. $33,000 were donated/provided by the LCHIP grant and donations by members. In-kind donations were approximately $500.00 and consisted primarily of fabric for drapes and curtains and the labor involved in making these items.
