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. The Federation is one of the world’s largest and oldest nonpartisan, nondenominational, women’s volunteer service organizations. For more on the accomplishments of the Federation over the years, click here.
The Woman’s Club of Williamsburg-GFWC meets monthly September through June, usually on the fourth Wednesday of the month. Meetings include a short business meeting and an interesting invited speaker. 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, raffles, silent auctions and card parties, and partner each year with a local organization to donate our time and talents. Our 2017-2018 partner is The Arc of Greater Williamsburg.
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.
