About GFWC: General Federation of Women’s Clubs
We focus on five areas of service — Arts and Culture, Environment, Education and Libraries, Health and Wellness, and Civic Engagement and Outreach. Each month there are opportunities to volunteer as a club.
Our membership includes women over the age 18 from all walks of life who work to better the lives of individuals in our community. We also have a lot of fun together!
We are a member of the GFWC Florida Federation of Women’s Clubs. Being part of a worldwide circle of service, with over 6,500 clubs in the United States alone, and over a million members worldwide in 20 countries, gives us the tools to better help people in our own community. There are opportunities to serve on the district, state and national level, providing unlimited chances for leadership development.
The GFWC St. Petersburg Junior Woman’s Club was organized in 1932. We have had a most distinguished history, frequently winning awards at the state level for our outstanding projects and membership events!
The GFWC Florida Director of Junior Clubs has chosen “Breathe, raising Cystic Fibrosis Awareness and Funds for a Cure” as her area of focus.
What is Cystic Fibrosis? Cystic Fibrosis (CF) is a life-threatening, progressive, genetic disease that affects the lungs and other organs and limits the ability to breathe over time. It is the leading genetic killer in the United States.
Why CF? More than 30,000 children and adults in the United States are affected by Cystic Fibrosis. In November 2009, my nephew Caden Ours became 1 of 30,000 when he was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis at birth. Real progress has been made in improving the length and quality of life of people with CF, but there is still no cure, and we need your help. Together, we will build hope and add tomorrows.
