Annually, we host an Arts Festival for our local students, elementary age through high school. We seek works of art from each of the local schools through their art instructors. There are a number of categories, and this always proves to us that there is some amazing talent amongst our students!
Staying "green" is encouraged from our Conservation Community Service Program, as they keep us aware of what is best for our environment.
Each year we also encourage rising seniors from our local high schools to apply for our club's Sallie Southall Cotten Scholarship. We award $500 from our club to a deserving rising senior who meets the criteria given from the GFWC, and shines during the interview process. In May, our Education Community Service Program follows up with an Off-to-College shower, "showering" our winner with items that he or she would expect to need during that first year away at college.
The MAJWC Home Life partners with the American Red Cross, the March of Dimes, the Susan G. Komen Organization, just to name a few, seeking donors and supporters for the walks and runs in our area.
Through Public Issues, we are advised to vote, and stay aware of the local services that are provided from our Police, Sherriff, EMS, and Firefighters.
Each year, our elected President selects a charity of choice, that the club devotes it's efforts to throughout the year. Those efforts may be through fundraising, or simply volunteering our time and talents.
Over the years, there has been thousands of dollars raised, and countless hours contributed to such organizations as The Children's Center of Surry County, Habitat for Humanity, LifeSpan, Surry Medical Ministries, and the Shepard's House.
It is simply amazing to see how much a small group of ladies with common goals can accomplish and give back to our community!
Through our works with the President's Special Projects and our Community Service Programs, we have been recognized at the local, district, and state levels of the Greater Federation of Women's Clubs of NC.
