Many New Jersey clubs did service projects for the GFWC Martin Luther King, Jr. (MLK) Day of Service on January 20, 2020. Only 211 projects were needed to organize to meet the 1,000-project goal of the 2018–2020 Administration.
If you missed MLK Day, it’s not too late to do a service project. There are countless ways that your club could serve its community, but the 2019 Top Projects lists are a great place to start. Select your club’s programmatic interest for a list of project ideas collected from State Award and Club Creativity entries. There’s something for every interest and club size!
Finally, don’t forget to identify ways to light up the GFWC brand as you organize your project! Any service project could potentially also serve as a membership recruitment event. Who wouldn’t want to join a club full of excited members who are proudly wearing their GFWC apparel? It’s an excellent opportunity to snap some photos to accompany a press release being sent to reporters in your club’s community!
