Woman's Club — Helping to nourish our neighbors

Martin Luther King once said that life’s most persistent and urgent question is: “What are you doing for others?”

The 87+ women from the GFWC Woman’s Club of Sun City Center would have no difficulty answering that question.  Their way of life/mission is to do for others, and Our Lady’s Pantry has long been the recipient of all their efforts.

“Once again, the Woman’s Club hosted another food drive for the Pantry on May 20, 2021,” says director, Tom Bullaro.  “As in the past, the food drive was held at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church, on Del Webb Blvd.  

“We are so appreciative of this effort by so many women to help ensure that our neighbors have plenty food on their tables each evening.”

The food drive this year was successful in providing about 1,600 items valued at an estimated $6,400 — plus an additional $700 in donations for food.

“We thank the Woman’s Club for their continuous care of us,” says Bullaro.   

The General Federation of Women’s Clubs is the world’s largest and oldest women’s volunteer organization.  The GFWC Woman’s Club is Sun City Center’s oldest service club, dating back to 1962.  The Club will hold it’s next meeting in person in the Community Hall on September 16, 2021.
