Who We Are
The Woman’s Club of Williamsburg-GFWC is a group of women with many different talents and interests who have banded together to enrich the quality of life for citizens of our community, all while having fun and forming life-long friendships!
We have a local history dating back to 1949, and are part of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs, an international women’s organization dedicated to local community improvements by enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service.
We meet monthly September through June, usually on the fourth Wednesday of the month. Members are able to choose between attending a daytime meeting combined with lunch and an interesting invited speaker, or going to a shorter evening meeting. Past speakers have included the Executive Director of Dream Catchers, the CEO of Colonial Williamsburg and local author Tony Williams.
We hold events large and small to raise funds for those in need, including fashion shows, yard sales, bus trips, raffles, silent auctions and card parties.
Throughout the year, even the smallest things can help: collecting stamps for the wounded, Campbell soup labels and box tops for education, and recyclable items to help protect our environment.
Holiday activities include distributing Christmas gifts to public housing and nursing home residents, helping the Salvation Army with their kettle bell-ringing, selling poinsettia plants, and donating to the Community Action Agency’s Christmas food drive.
