Our Community Service and Volunteer Activities
GFWC Clearwater Community Woman's Club (CCWC) is an organization focused on community service.
To date, we have provided nearly a million volunteer hours to Clearwater and we have donated almost half a million dollars to hundreds of community organizations through Daisy Grants and other awards.
By 1980, we raised $10,000 for a new Cancer Pavilion at Morton Plant Hospital.
In the 1990s, we joined with other volunteer organizations to help build the Center, the new home for UPARC/ARC. To learn more about ARC, click here.
In the early 2000s, we raised $25,000 to help build the new main library on Osceola Avenue in Clearwater. This donation was matched by the Eckerd Foundation.
In 2022 we began our new multi-year signature initiatives. Our fist initiative with a focus on Human Traffic was highly successful. Our current signature initiative focuses on Food Insecurity for Children and families in our area.
Walk to End Alzheimer's
Each year, CCWC, along with other clubs in Florida, participates in the annual Walk to End Alzheimer's to both raise money and awareness for this cause.
Little Free Library at Moccasin Lake Nature Park
CCWC Environment CSP supplies science books for the Moccasin Lake Little Free Library built by Friends of Moccasin Lake. Our Environment CSP members host a monthly science class at the park for 4-6 year old children.
In the US, Flag Day is celebrated on June 14th. It commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened on that day in 1777 by resolution of the Second Continental Congress. The person who spearheaded the recognition of this day was one Bernard J. Cigrand of Waubeka, Wisconsin. CCWC's connection to Cigrand is that his grandaughter, Barbara Michael, was a member of CCWC. CCWC members commemorate Flag Day by planting the national flag in a Clearwater neighborhood.
Beach Cleanup Dunedin Causeway
CCWC members enjoy the outdoors as they help to clean up our beaches on a regular basis.
Kimberly Home is a pregnancy resource center in Clearwater. Our club had adopted this home one year under our Club President's Project. Since then, we have continued to support the home in different ways. One of the things we do is change the decorations on the Tree of Life mural in the Day Care Center each month.
