The GFWC Home Life Community Service Program is designed to inform members of issues that affect the well-being of individuals, families, and communities, by providing opportunities and resources to meet and address needs through volunteering. Through this program clubs may develop and implement creative projects that promote a healthy lifestyle; increase awareness, prevention, research, and treatment of disease; target personal development; address the issues of hunger, inadequate housing, and homelessness; and/or prevent or correct financial difficulties.
Some examples of Home Life projects we’ve done in the past include:
- Fulfillment of Christmas wish lists for more than 30 families
- Delivering dinner to guests at the Tampa Ronald McDonald House
- Volunteer Day at Feeding America Tampa Bay
- Conducting a “reverse” trick-or-treat by visiting with residents at a local nursing home and handing out treats instead of receiving them.
