Community Service Programs
Arts and Culture Community Service Program
The study of art ad culture enriches the human experience. Art Education improves problem solving and critical thinking skills, builds focus and perseverance, and nurtures creativity, confidence, and collaboration. Cultural awareness promotes effective communication and profoundly increases the ability to appreciate and enjoy a variety of new people and experiences. Organizations we support include The Aurora Theatre, The Hudgens Center for Art and Learning, and Central Gwinnett High School Arts Program.
Environment Community Service Program
GFWC members are encouraged to become stewards of the earth by working to preserve the world's resources, protect wildlife and domesticated animals, live sustainably, and beautify our communities and enjoy nature. Organizations we support include Gwinnett Jail Dogs Program, Lawrenceville Community Garden, Food Well Alliance, and Trees Atlanta.
GFWC Community Service Programs and Special Projects focus on the major issues of our time--supporting women's health, preserving natural resources, promoting literacy and equality, and encouraging volunteer service--and fall into the following areas of focus
Education and Libraries Community Service Program
GFWC members promote education in both children and adults. We aim to help others, while we also continue to learn. Projects are designed to foster schools, as well as other educational institutions and opportunities, and to promote literacy, libraries, and the love of a good book. Through these efforts, we encourage the growth of individuals and communities at home and around the world. Organizations we support include The Special Needs School of Gwinnett, Gwinnett County Public Libraries, and Lawrenceville Elementary School.
Health and Wellness Community Service Program
The human body, mind, and spirit comprise our health and wellness. To improve our wellbeing, we must address three key components: nutrition, disease prevention, and physical and emotional care. This program aims to explore the various opportunities for awareness and advancement of each of these vital areas. Organizations we support include Gwinnett Extended Care, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Gwinnett County Department of Family and Children's Services (DFCS), and local community Health Fairs.
Civic Engagement and Outreach Community Service Program
GFWC members are reminded that each of us is a part of a larger society and is responsible for undertaking actions that will create a better quality of life and foster a sense of community--locally regionally, nationally, and globally. The four "broad strokes" of this effort include: Citizenship, Crime Prevention, Safety, and Disaster Preparedness; the Needy, Hungry, and Homeless; and our Military Personnel and Veterans. Organizations we support include Folds of Honor, Gwinnett Voter Registration, and the Gwinnett Veterans Resource Center.
