Members of the Woman’s Club are dedicated to helping others in the Central Florida community by donating to organizations such as:
Welbourne Nursery and Kindergarten: We provide financial support and volunteer our time with the children. http://www.welbourneavenuenursery.org/
Family Promise: We contribute “move in kits” with essential items to homeless families who are moving into permanent housing. http://www.familypromise.org/
Salvation Army: Members fill stockings for the Salvation army for distribution to needy children. http://give.salvationarmyusa.org
Winter Park Housing: We provide gifts and gift certificates for single parent families during the holidays in conjunction with the Winter Park Housing Authority http://www.winterparkha.org/
Holiday Tree in the Park: We support the community by decorating the tree on Morse Avenue with the City of Winter Park, and participating in the Winter Park Christmas Parade each year.
Orlando Union Rescue Mission: In the spring, we fill bags with necessary hygiene items for distribution to the homeless by the Orlando Rescue Mission. http://www.ourm.org/
Dress for Success: Collect clothing for Dress for Success https://greaterorlando.dressforsuccess.org/
Adult Literacy League: After a decision was made to add projects that involve more personal commitment and satisfaction, members began tutoring at the Adult Literacy League. The project participants experience much success with their students. https://www.adultliteracyleague.org/
Ways and Means Committee
The goal of the Ways and Means Committee is to raise funds for charitable giving, involving as many club members as possible. We raise funds through a variety of means:
Rummage Sale: This year our sale will be on September 02, 2017 (9AM to 4PM). We will be selling jewelry, antiques, books, clothes, and small furniture items. Donations will be accepted Monday through Friday August 28-September 1 9AM to 1:30 PM.
Spring Woman’s Show: The Woman’s Club Woman’s Show began in 2013. This event consists of 20 – 24 vendors showcasing various products (clothing, jewelry, skin care products, purses, flowers, etc) that would interest women of all ages. This year the Woman’s Show is scheduled for Saturday February 17, 2018 from 9AM to 4PM.
Founder’s Day: In January 2015 the Woman’s Club of Winter Park, Inc. celebrated 100 years of organization supporting education and service. Each January the members remember and celebrate the achievements of their club. Our celebration this year will be January 18, 2018, from 6-8pm.
Bake Sale: The club sponsors 2 – 3 bake sales a year of homemade goodies. The bake sale usually coincides with the rummage sale and our Christmas luncheon.
Drawings: Drawings are usually done each year. One popular event is the 50/50 drawing where the winner and the club split the total amount. Previously, we held a drawing for a Kindle (at the annual rummage sale) and a gift basket donated by Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse (spring luncheon).
