Each month, members of the Lockport Woman’s Club collect items for charities that serve area residents. By participating in these projects, we harness the vast resources of our membership to address the needs of their individual communities. As members of the GFWC, the Community Service Programs and Special Programs focus on major issues that affect our communities daily—supporting women’s health, preserving natural resources, promoting literacy and equality, citizen advocacy, and encouraging volunteer service.
There are some projects that are ongoing and some that are for a specific month. Listed below are the service projects for the 2017-2018 Club year,
