TCWC in Service to Our Community
The Spirit of Giving
Your 2019 TCWC Service Committee includes Luanne Oldham, Lynn Dillner, Sue Johnson, Martha Moore, Carla Beckman, Ruth Germany, Kelley Class, Laurie Katan, Rhonda Labor and Sally Freeman. This Committee has met and established the following service project goals for 2019.
Spring - Pet Food/Supply Drive for Humane Society. Items will be collected at the MarchTCWC General Meeting. Items may also be dropped off at any Service Committee Member’shome or you can contact Sally Freeman via text 214-668-3150 for pick up from your location during March and April. Thanks in advance for helping our “furry friends!”
Summer - Stuff the Backpacks for NISD. Many of us enjoyed providing the labor to organize and stuff the backpacks for needy students last August. This is a worthwhile 3-hour commitment for one or two days followed by a fun group lunch. More information coming in July and August.
Fall - Meal to Honor our Trophy Club First Responders. More details to come in later months. We hope to provide a wonderful home cooked meal for our local police and fire departments in appreciation for their service to our community.
Winter – Year-End Collection to Assist the Roanoke Food Pantry with Holiday Meals. Thisyear we will promote a “Charity Challenge” among the different activity groups within TCWC! We hope all groups (book clubs, yoga, dining, movie buffs, Bunco, wine lovers, etc.) will join the challenge when details are announced this summer. Watch your eblasts and Newsletters so you do not miss out!
We also want to promote a new program recently established by Metroport Meals on Wheels (MMOW). This new Friendly Visitor Program is designed as an opportunity for volunteers to share conversation, games and other interests with MMOW participants who have expressed an interest in having visitors. You are asked to schedule a weekly visit of at least one hour working around your schedule. For more information on this Program, please contact Shelly Ball at MMOW via email@example.com or phone 214-914-9206.
Each year volunteer members of the Trophy Club Women’s Club coordinate and conduct fundraising events with proceeds distributed to organizations serving women and children in Denton and Northeast Tarrant Counties.
For any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Laurie Katan, Allocations & Grants Chair, at firstname.lastname@example.org or at 316-558-2785.
