The Rossmoor Woman’s Club supports many projects, large and small. Every Christmas our members participate in Adopt-A-Family programs in cooperation with the We Care Family Support Center and the Joint Forces Training Base. As a result, armed service members and their families enjoy a Christmas filled with toys, clothes, and food. In June we also provide back-packs and school supplies to children of the service personnel at JFTB. In 2015 we provided over 75 back-packs.
We give many monetary donations to charities. In 2016 we gave $1000 to Harbor Area Halfway Houses for a dishwasher. We also grant a $300 scholarship to the student of the month from Los Alamitos High School and four scholarships for young women to attend the AAUW Tech Trek. These are just three of the areas where we support individuals and organizations with funds for those who need it.
In addition, we also provide many in-kind donations to the community. In 2016 we purchased over 75 bus passes for the students at Bethune Transitional and donated over 20 prom dresses to them. We also collect food for Food Finders and donate clothes to Women Helping Women. These are just a few of the charities we support. Twice a year we cook a meal at the Ronald McDonald house in Long Beach. We also volunteer to pack food for delivery by Food Finders, and collect blankets and towels for the Long Beach Animal Care Services.
Our members are at work in our community every day improving the quality of life for all of our citizens. We provide financial support, volunteer hours, and in-kind donations on a regular basis throughout Rossmoor, Los Alamitos, Seal Beach, Long Beach, and Orange County.
