Philanthropy 2017 - 2018
We have shown the generosity of our members through our Philanthropy projects this year. We collected over 800 pounds of food and $2500 for FeedMore in the fall, collected toys, gifts and $1500 for St. Joseph’s Villa at Christmas, collected art and craft supplies and $400 for The Glen Allen Cultural Arts Center outreach programs and donated children’s books at Easter for The Richmond Read Center. The Dover Award recipient, Jill’s Blankets, received $1500 to purchase supplies. A $500 gift was presented to the Scholarship Endowment Fund from the club budget. During the Art Show, the raffle and art sale raised over $5000 for The Scholarship Endowment Fund. Five $3000 scholarships were awarded to deserving high school seniors this year.
