The Woman’s Club of Washington Grove was created to promote greater sociability and a betterment of civic and cultural conditions in Washington Grove.
The Woman’s Club of Washington Grove focuses on outreach to our Town and our surrounding Communities.
The Woman’s Club’s annual dues are a modest $15 per calendar year, which goes to support our many events and projects, and entitles you to a significant discount on renting our Clubhouse. To join the Club, please contact Cynthia Werts at 301-926-1668 or [email protected].
Our lovely Clubhouse is available for rental to residents of the Town from mid-March through late November.
We donate funds to support The Summer In the Parks program, the Acorn Library, the Holiday Show, and other worthy projects.
We host annual Town events such as the January White Elephant Sale, the February Chili Dinner, the Spring Egg Hunt, the May Flower Show, the September Pot Luck Supper, and other special events such as guest speakers.
We produce a Town Directory every three years.
And throughout the year, we collect for many Outreach programs, including:
The Washington Grove Elementary School’s Teachers Closet
We collect school supplies all year for the Teachers Closet. We hope to keep it filled with things like glue sticks, pencils and sharpeners, paper, hand sanitizers and tissues, and other supplies. Without our help, teachers will all too often end up buying these things out of their own pockets.
Working with Interfaith Works
While the less fortunate children of our County need essentials, they also need occasional treats in their lives, and we help provide these by collecting Birthday Presents and small Treasure Chest items to be distributed through Interfaith works.
There is also an ongoing need for new underwear for boys and girls from toddlers to teens. Last year our Town provided over 250 pair. We have developed sources for purchasing the underwear, so the easiest way to help with this need is through money donations.
White Socks for the Gude Men’s Shelter
Winter is hard enough for the homeless without going without socks! We are continuing to collect new white socks for the men at the Shelter.
For those who like to work with fabric, this year we’re supporting The Linus Project, which makes fleece blankets for children in need of comfort when they are in the hospital or foster care.
Where to Bring Your Donations
Whatever pulls at your heart strings, we have a need you can fulfill. Even when our Clubhouse is closed for the winter, we still have bins on the porch to collect for our Community Outreach Programs, or you can drop off your contributions in the painted can on Wendy Weisbard’s porch at 119 Grove Road. Drop off your contributions and we’ll sort where they go! Checks are always appreciated too, just put in the memo field if you want your donation to go to a specific project.
