Following the lead of GFWC Rhode Island State President Debra Capuano, several GFWC Rhode Island clubs participated in a donation challenge with GFWC Affiliate Organization March of Dimes. Rhode Island clubs were challenged with a goal of making five baby hats, five blankets, and five mommy bags per club. GFWC Cranston Community Women’s Club, GFWC Women’s Club of South County, GFWC Bristol Community Women’s Club, GFWC Warwick Women’s Club, GFWC Wampanoag Women’s Club, and GFWC Rhode Island Alumni Club went above and beyond for this challenge. In total, clubwomen made 76 blankets, 737 hats, 125 baby headbands, and 40 mommy bags filled with personal care supplies. Monetary donations from club members and additional donations from family, friends, and the East Providence Senior Center were also collected. Ten boxes of donations were shipped to March of Dimes.
