GFWC Escanaba Woman’s Club helping community

This week’s bouquets go to:

From Kay Johnson, president of the GFWC Escanaba Woman’s Club:

The COVID -19 pandemic has changed the way we live our daily lives and communicate with each other. The ladies of the GFWC Escanaba Woman’s Club have continued with their commitment of improving the lives of individuals in our community. We have met virtually and via email to send out financial assistance to groups in need. GFWC provided for the food banks of Salvation Army, St. Vincent de Paul in Gladstone and Escanaba. The two local scholarships for a student at the Escanaba High School and Bay College will still be presented this spring.

We were proud to make a donation to local businesses made protective shields and gowns for OSF. Kobasic Creations and Stormy Kromer are two Upper Michigan companies that GFWC financially assisted to produce these vital items.

Our membership is staying connected via email, sharing stories of how to keep busy and have meaningful days during this time of isolation. Several of our members are making protective masks and crocheting elastic extenders for the masks. Some members are cooking meals for the elderly. Many GFWC members are busy at work, continuing to provide essential services each day.

We are blessed in our community to have service clubs like Rotary, Lions, Kiwanis, and many others, that are working to help however we can during this difficult time. Our GFWC Escanaba Woman’s Club is staying strong together, even though we are apart. Please stay safe and stay well!
