The Future Looks Bright
The Volunteering program is our longest running initiative, based on the premise that making a real difference is not only possible but vital. At gfwcbillings.org, volunteering is a source of great pride for our Volunteer Organization. Members of the Civic Engagement and Outreach made Christmas bags for Casey's Dream, an adult daycare. They made 35 bags with hats, gloves, calendars, a game or craft, stuffed animal and a candy cane.
Making Change Possible
Feeling like there are countless pressing issues that no single program could make a marked difference? Our Local Empowerment initiative has proven to be a powerful tool for gfwcbillings.org to successfully serve our community and improve countless lives. GFWC/BJWC donated a Touring Cart to ZooMontana which allows elderly, handicapable, and small children to enjoy the zoo.
Look at some of our latest projects and help spread the word about all the amazing developments at gfwcbillings.org.
Our club is planning to collect 500 pounds of plastic film during a six-month period. If we meet the goal, a new bench made of recycled materials will be provided for our town!
Accepted items include:
Plastic films labeled with #2 or #4 recycling symbol
Pallet wrap and stretch film
Dry cleaning bags
Wood pellet bags
Ziplock and other re-closable Food storage bags
Bubble wrap and air pillow
Plastic padded envelopes
Advocates for Children
Members meet the children at the Youth Services Center to decorate a Christmas Tree and share treats. The children later receive a gift card and go shopping with members.
Two libraries have been set up at the Youth Services Center.
Health and Wellness
Hospitals receive care pillows to give to breast cancer patients and other patients that need special care.
BJWC prepares kits and Billings Middle School students sew and stuff the pillows. They also leave a note. Members then drop them at the hospital as needed.
