OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
Each year the GFWC Temple Terrace Womanís Club organized this project through Samaritanís Purse. Each box is wrapped and filled according to sex and age. The Club works with the Temple Terrace Juniorettes to fill the boxes with stuffed toys, small clothing items, hygiene item, school supplies and books. GFWC Temple Terrace Junior Womanís Club added boxes and all were delivered to the pick-up point.
PETís are hand activated wheelchairs especially made for the needs of handicapped people in third world countries. They are locally made and the organization is entirely volunteer. Our Club voted to add a PET wheelchair to our budget.
The Temple Terrace Womanís Club members sent donations to the program in lieu of exchanging gifts during the holidays. Members involved in social groups such as bridge, bunco and mah jongg donated a portion of their dues/winnings to purchase a Heifer animal.
We blankets purchased at a local department store and deliver them to Migrant Camp workers in southern Hillsborough County.
SISTER CITY PROGRAM
Our Club initiated this program and worked with out city to host visitors from Eastleigh, England for two weeks.
