From the Wellesley Hills Junior Women’s Club:
The Wellesley Hills Junior Women’s Club (WHJWC), a non-profit volunteer organization dedicated to community service, is now accepting applications for grants.
In the last five years, the WHJWC has given away almost half a million dollars. In 2012, the club awarded $70,000 in grants to Wellesley and Metrowest organizations. The club donates to a variety of educational, recreational, healthcare, youth, elderly, civic and community programs. Particular emphasis is placed on those programs that have a significant impact on the Wellesley community as a whole and its individual residents.
Applications are available online at www.whjwc.org and should be sent to the attention of Kathy Barron, Chair, Donations Committee, [email protected], or mailed to WHJWC Donations, PO Box 81194, Wellesley Hills, MA 02481-0002 no later than February 1, 2013.
WHJWC was established in 1944 as a service organization under the Massachusetts Federation of Women’s Clubs. Through its four fundraisers – the Wellesley Phone Book, the Wellesley Marketplace Craft Festival, Luminary Night, and the Wellesley Kitchen Tour – WHJWC raises money that is given to local charities as well as to Wellesley scholarship recipients.
For more information on grants, please contact Kathy Barron, 2012-2013 WHJWC Donations Chair, at [email protected].
