WHO ARE WE AND WHAT DO WE DO?
We are the Paradise Valley Junior Woman’s club of Arizona and we are part of the General Federation of Woman’s Clubs. The General Federation of Woman’s Clubs is one of the world’s largest and oldest nonpartisan, nondenominational, women’s volunteer service organizations. It was founded in 1890 and chartered by the 56th United States Congress in 1901.
More than 100,000 members in affiliated clubs in every state and more than a dozen countries work in their own communities to support the arts, preserve natural resources, advance education, promote healthy lifestyles, encourage civic involvement, and work toward world peace and understanding. In 2006, GFWC and its members raised nearly $32 million on behalf of more than 230,000 projects, and volunteered more than 8.4 million hours.
PVJWC is involved in projects that included HOBY, Vista Colina, Veteran’s Project, St. Vincent de Paul and CPS Kidz Kits to name a few. One Community Improvement project we are most proud of is our purchase of a new paint sprayer for the City of Phoenix to remove Graffiti from neighborhoods. We are currently working on many more projects and would invite you to attend one of our meetings to learn how you can get involved.
