Fundraiser helps GFWC Jubilee Woman’s Club deliver needed help to local groups

Posted

DAPHNE, Alabama — Delivering meals to the homeless, establishing a Little Free Library and giving comfort to dementia patients are just a few of the projects taken on by members of the GFWC Jubilee Woman’s Club this past year. Funding these projects requires resources and the club hopes you can help.

GFWC Jubilee Woman’s Club members are selling Boston butts for a Super Bowl delivery. The Boston Butts are $35 each and must be preordered from club members. The deadline for orders is Jan. 23 and Boston butts can be picked up Jan. 30 from Fastimes in Daphne.

“We appreciate the community helping us fund our many projects,” said Sherri Killam-Albee, president of GFWC Jubilee Woman’s Club. “In 2019, we were able to establish and supply a Little Free Library in Silverhill, furnish meals for homeless women, help fund clean drinking water in rural African communities and distribute fidget pillows to people who benefit from sensory activities.”

Another project of the club has been American Meals for American Heroes for the residents at the William F. Green Veterans Home in Bay Minette. Additionally, the club donated money to Quilts of Valor, an organization that makes quilts for veterans and pledged to make a quilt for the group.

“In 2020, we are hoping to help even more people,” Killam-Albee said.

GFWC Jubilee Woman’s Club has been part of the Baldwin County community for more than 25 years. Its members come from all walks of life and all ages, truly living the General Federation of Women’s Clubs motto of unity in diversity.
