Charity Work

Supporting our local charities is such an important function of our Women's Club. Each luncheon gives us the opportunity to support a specific charitable organization.

There are many worthwhile organizations in our community that need the assistance of volunteers to maintain their daily operations. If you are interested in volunteering for one of these organizations, either on a regular basis or for a single event, or are interested in getting more information on a particular charity, please, contact our Charities Director, Kathy Jenner at beachbound56@sbcglobal.net or 209-606-6416.
