Tampa Woman's Club
The Club has also worked with MacDonald Training Center, Hillsborough Community Hospital, Shriner's Hospital, Reach Out to Cancer Kids (R.O.C.K.) Camp and more.
We moved to our current location "overlooking beautiful Bayshore Boulevard and Tampa Bay" in 1972.
Community Service Programs
The General Federation of Women's Clubs (GFWC) has established six main emphasis areas to give our members opportunities to explore their interests and give back to their Community.
The Arts: members utilize their creative talents, support women in the Arts and provide arts projects with children.
Conservation: members participate in local clean-ups, recycling programs and natural resources conservation.
Education: members provide scholarships, reading programs and educational materials.
Home Life: members address health issues and issues that affect families. Some projects include Reaching Out to Cancer Kids (R.O.C.K.) Camp, Canine Companions, March of Dimes, and financial issues.
International Outreach: promotes cooperation and allows members to make a difference internationally with projects such as UNICEF, CARE, CURE, Cambodian Floating School and third world country orphanages.
Public Issues: members make the public aware of crime prevention, victim's rights, safety, Veterans and legislation relating to these same issues.
GFWC is a national leader in the fight to end domestic violence by raising awareness about this social issue. By supporting existing activities, working with various established programs, and initiating educational opportunities for club members and local citizens, the goal of the GFWC Signature Project: Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention is to increase awareness of the widespread occurrence of domestic abuse.
We also have a night meeting starting promptly at 6:30pm for working ladies. Their business meeting is held at the Clubhouse or at a member's home and is followed by a potluck dinner unless they choose to go to a restaurant.
