Our Community Service and Volunteer Activities
GFWC Clearwater Community Woman's Club (CCWC) is an organization focused on community service.
Over the past 50 years, we have:
Worked nearly a million volunteer hours
Raised $10,000 by 1980 for a new Cancer Pavilion at Morton Plant Hospital
Joined with others in the 1990s to help and build the Long Center, the new home for UPARC/ARC
Raised $25,000 in the early 2000s which was matched by the Eckerd Foundation to help build the new main library on Oceola Avenue in Clearwater.
We have raised and donated about half a million dollars to hundreds of different community organizations through Daisy award, grants and other projects.
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.
