What We Do

Community Service Programs

GFWC has five Community Service Programs to build upon the difference that the Federation has collectively made throughout the United States—and across the globe. These core program committees provide vehicles for organizing our volunteer efforts. Each committee chairwoman coordinates with various organizations and agencies in the community. She funnels their volunteer or donation needs to the club members serving on her committee or to the entire club when necessary. These committees are also ways we connect with each other to network and build friendships.  SAWC has added two additional categories - Social Committees and Standing Committees.

Be a Power for Good

SAWC members have volunteered more than 40,000 hours collectively, and given over $35,000 of in-kind resources to assist and support the efforts of a wide variety of programs such as*:

  • Children’s books for the Salem caregiver recognition

  • Apartment furnishings a for Salem resident

  • Outfit bathrooms for Brigid’s House of Hope

  • Pinwheel gardens for Child Abuse Awareness

  • Puzzles for Senior Centers

  • Greater Salem Chamber’s Wreath Stroll.
