We are Helping Out Where SNAP Leaves Off
As the desperate needs of those around us continue, we are collecting some of the much-needed items that SNAP (formerly Food Stamps) doesn’t pay for:

  • Similac – especially the blue boxes of powder
  • Pedialyte – any flavor
  • Diapers – sizes 3 and up
  • Diaper wipes
  • Toilet paper
  • Feminine hygiene products

Monetary donations are always appreciated and put to good use. If you would like to make a contribution to this program, make your check out to the Woman’s Club and note on the memo line that it is for SNAP Plus. All donations can be dropped off on Wendy Weisbard’s porch at 119 Grove Ave. or in the boxes on the Clubhouse porch.

We’re Going to Provide Meals to Some Shelters
Before the pandemic, groups took turns preparing meals at the Men’s Shelter. Because that’s not possible right now, we are instead arranging to have pizzas delivered to them on Monday night, March 15th.

Little Cesars will deliver pizzas for the 120 residents at the Men’s Shelter. We also hope to provide salads.

We need your help in providing desserts that evening. Home baked would be wonderful, but store bought is also good. If you can donate dessert items, please contact Wendy Weisbard at [email protected] letting her know that you can donate something and also if you need someone to pick it up or that you can drop them off on her porch.

One morning, Einstein’s Bagels will deliver breakfast bagels and cream cheese to both the Men’s Shelter and the nearby Women’s Shelter.

We are continuing to collect white socks and toiletries for the Men’s Shelter, which could be delivered at the same time.

We are Making Contributions to Interfaith Works Boxes
Interfaith Works has developed resources which allow them, for $25 each, to put together and distribute boxes of food and other desperately needed items.

We are earmarking some of the Golden Elephant funds to support this program. If you would like to help too, please either drop off your checks, made out to the Woman’s Club with a notation in the memo line that it’s for the Interfaith Works Boxes, to Wendy Weisbard, in the painted can on her porch at 119 Grove Ave., or leave them in one of the boxes on the Clubhouse porch.

Spring Really is Coming
As the first buds of spring start popping up, keep your cameras handy, because we are going to do another Virtual Flower Show this year. As you get pictures, send them to Marilynn Frey at [email protected] and she will start putting together this year’s online show.

What would you think about us offering maps for self-guided walking tours of the beautiful gardens around Town? Please let us know if you would be willing to have people stop by to admire your flowers?

Our Annual Membership Drive
If you haven’t paid your modest $15 annual dues yet, please make out your check to The Woman’s Club of Washington Grove, and send to The Woman’s Club, PO Box 354, Washington Grove, MD 20880, with a notation on the memo line that it is for dues.

These dues make it possible for us to donate funds to help support the Summer In the Parks program, the Acorn Library, and the Holiday Show, and for us to host annual Town events like the January White Elephant Sale, the February Chili Dinner, the Spring Egg Hunt, the May Flower Show, the June Progressive Porch Party, the September Potluck Supper, and other special events such as guest speakers and, of course, all year we collect for Community Outreach programs.
