Junior Women's Club

Community Improvement Through Volunteer Service

The GFWC Junior Woman’s Club of Springfield (est. 1952) is a non-profit group of diverse women from all over Delaware County. Our mail goal is…to smile…to help others…to have fun…raise money for charity…promote awareness in our community…make long-standing friendships…and to have more fun.

Our monthly business meetings are every third Tuesday of the month at 7:00 PM at the Township Building. In addition, we have a Book Club, Health & Fitness Outings, along with various social events such as Murder Mystery Nights, St. Patrick Day Party, Happy Hours & more!

 

JWCS sponsors several community events each year, such as our Halloween Parade on Saxer Avenue, October Open House, March Madness Charity Auction, Annual Breast Cancer Pillow Service Project & Face-painting after the 4th of July Parade. Our club also honors outstanding local high school seniors and sponsors the Doris Monaghan Allied Health Scholarship, which is awarded to a local high school senior pursuing a college career in a science-related career.

Every two years the Club President chooses a new charity to support. We have raised thousands of dollars for worthwhile causes ranging from victims of domestic abuse and sex trafficking, families affected by long-term illness, and children in need of housing and supplies.

Like everyone these days, our club members lead very busy lives, but we all agree that it’s important to set time aside to have fun, meet new friends, and make a difference in our community. Our club is a unique blend in that we have women of all ages and stages of life who have joined together to make a difference in our community through our activities and fundraising. In return, we have gained amazing friendships and a feeling of accomplishment.

If you are new to the area or a life-long resident looking for a different outlet we are the group for you! You do not need to be a Springfield resident.
