Dr Seuss Books Collection

We are collecting new or very gently used Dr. Seuss books for Oakland Beach Pre-School.

Collection for Old Sneakers

Nike Re-use a Shoe Program

Old athletic shoes, collected through Nike's Reuse-A-Shoe program, are sliced into three parts and then ground into rubber bits, foam or a fluffy fiber. Nike sells them to buyers who use them to line running tracks, playgrounds, gym and weight room floors and carpet underlay. 

 They accept any brand of athletic shoes, but they're  unable to recycle sandals, dress shoes, boots, or shoes with metal (like cleats or spikes).

    We are collecting NEW 

  • diapers

  • childrens socks

  • childrens underwear

  • all sizes - girl or boy

Project Undercover provides diapers, socks, underwear and baby wipes to serve the approximately 20,000 Rhode Island children living in poverty. We partner with over two-dozen partner agencies throughout the state to distribute these items directly into their communities.

                          31 Bags

We have teamed up with "31 Bags" as our current fundraiser. They are an organization that not only has beautiful products that are so functional and useful in everyday life, but they are a supporter of women around the world, which made them the perfect choice for us.

Please help us by looking through the catalog and purchasing something that will help make your life easier. GFWC Warwick Women's club will receive 25% profit from everything you buy. Each item will be shipped directly to your home. Thank you in advance for your support.

    Veterans Honor Flight

 

GFWC RI as a whole helped The Fire Chiefs of RI Honor Flight program to fund the first ever ALL female veterans Honor Flight on April 6, 2019.  We had fundraisers to be able to honor these courageous female veterans with the Honor Flight. Veterans were transported to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at their memorials.

Please check out the video--it is very moving and we are proud to have been a part of it as well as to continue to help support MORE honor flights!

check back soon for more honor flights
