Three Local Non-Profit Agencies Received Donations From The Woman’s Club Of Gettysburg
Representatives from C.A.R.E.S, Survivors and the Gettysburg Community Soup Kitchen attended the Woman’s Club December luncheon and were presented with checks by the Board President Linda Sluck. The holiday luncheon was held at the Gettysburg Pike Restaurant and after the meal everyone was entertained by the outstanding men’s a cappella group, “Drop the Octave” from Gettysburg College. The Gettysburg Soup Kitchen’s Community Outreach Liaison, Kathleen Redding was at the luncheon to receive their donation from the Woman’s Club.
The Woman’s Club of Gettysburg, which began in 1921 as the Gettysburg Mother’s Club currently has 76 members. The Club’s stated objective is “to unite the influence and interests of women of Gettysburg and vicinity and to promote the civic, educational, moral and social welfare of the community with special attention to the problems of childhood and youth.” Each year the Woman’s Club awards scholarships to graduating seniors in the County schools who are planning a non-academic career. This year they provided $6000 in scholarships to high school seniors and $2000 to local non-profit agencies.
The Gettysburg Community Soup Kitchen thanks the Woman’s Club of Gettysburg for their most generous contribution and for the good works they do for our community.
