Staunton Augusta Junior Women's Club
Women Working Together To Strengthen Our Community
2020 In Review
2020 was an unusual, but productive year for the SAJWC's 14 members.
SAJWC continued their twenty four year history of annual ornament sales with net proceeds being donated in the form of two scholarships to local high school girls that are looking to further their education. The design was an awesome tribute to Staunton's own Statler Brothers. We supported organizations such as Valley Children's Advocacy Center, Prevent Child Abuse America, and St. Jude's Children's Hospital research. Our newest project is helping to keep the West End Blessing Box full every month. Members also participated in our quarterly trash pick-ups in coordination with "Adopt a Highway" on Statler Blvd in Staunton.
The Club is very proud to have six members who are very active on the District and State Levels of GFWC Virginia. One member is the current Shenandoah District President, one is the Shenandoah District Director of Junior Clubs, one is the Shenandoah District Treasurer, another is the GFWC Virginia Junior Courtesy Chair, another is the GFWC Virginia Fundraising Chair, and the sixth member is the GFWC Virginia Director of Junior Clubs.
We have truly enjoyed being involved in our community and are looking forward to another successful year "Living the Volunteer Spirit"!
