GFWC

Lee District

The Lee District Special Project is Domestic Violence Awareness, with a specific focus on fundraising for the GFWC Success for Survivors Scholarship. In addition, we will collect items for local shelters throughout Lee District. Domestic Violence affects one in four women at some point in her lifetime.  Much work has already been done in this area but there is still more to do.  Together, we will continue to find ways to work toward ending Domestic Violence!
