The Junior Woman's Club of Chevy Chase
In addition to supporting organizations such as Operation Smile and Chevy Chase Firehouse, the JWCCC focuses on supporting initiatives that enhance the quality of life of women and children.
As such, each year we adopt two Community Partners, putting our resources to work in a way that will make the most impact. Our current Community Partners are the National Center For Children and Families (NCCF) and A Wider Circle (Silver Spring, MD).
We also have an October Book and Bake sale to benefit the Chevy Chase Fire Department, collect school supplies for the Montgomery County needy students, support needy fmilies with gifts at Christmastime, and give baby supplies to the Sasha Bruce Network ( DC), and collect summer clothing to send to Sierra Leone.
We have conducted fund raising events such as Casino Night, MidWinter Tea Party, Comedy Night, Swing Dance, Barn Dance, and Wine Tasting. With our wonderful and dedicated member volunteers, we have raised thousands of dollars for our charities.
Our monthly meetings are on a Wednesday evening, September through May, and each meeting has a topic and refreshments. We also do many co-events with the Women's Club of Chevy Chase.
In addition to the charitable causes, we enjoy socializing at our monthly book club, Girls Night Out outings, and welcome all members to speak up about their persoanl pet projects.
Club funds are not used for these events, and we are careful to keep our operating costs low,
so that we will have more for our charities.
