Womenís Activity Club of Delaware Veterans Post # 1 was
established in 1995 by a group of women associated with the Post. The
membership has grown to 73 members and is still growing.
main goal of the Womenís Activity Club is to continuously seek out
organizations that survive on donations, whether it be meeting the
needs of community organizations or veteran associations such as Home of the
Brave, USO, Veteranís Hospital, etc. Many different events are held to
raise money to meet these goals, such as a spaghetti dinner and basket auction,
a potato bar dinner, Christmas auction, wacky bingo, St. Patrick's Day dinner,
and a flea market. While doing so, the members enjoy each otherís
company and make new friends. The
Womenís Activity Club always welcomes new members to
help us in our endeavors.
addition to the monetary donations, the Womenís Activity Club sponsors
various collections that allow us to donate such things like food for
various food banks, toiletries and various clothing needs for the homeless
at the Sunday Breakfast
Mission, and school supplies for Title 1 schools in the area. The
members have also been
involved with coat drives for school children in recent years. The Womenís
Activity Club members
are proud to say that between 30% and
67% of the money donated goes towards
military and veterans related charities.
The Womenís Activity Club would like to sincerely thank Del Vets and their members for their continuous support. Keep a look out for upcoming events and meetings on the events calendar.
