Southside Woman's Club of Jacksonville Welcomes New Members to Help Make a Difference in Our Community!

Congratulations to US!!! Special THANKS to Lauralyn & Cheryl for making the trip to Camp Boggy Creek to install our Group Project: Wind Chimes!

The GFWC Southside Woman's Club contributed Wind Chimes to Camp Boggy Creek, the previous GWC Florida President's project. Recognized at district and state levels, these chimes were hung at the camp in June, bringing joy and peace. It's been an honor to support this meaningful cause for children.

Congratulations SWCJAX New Board of Directors 2024-26!!

What a great day for SWCJAX with Past & Current  D4 Directors present at the inauguration of our new BOD. Great to see new faces on the Board! Thank you, Terry Laws, D4 Director, for helping with the day!!!

Our “We CAN Make a Difference” Food Drive Helps JCA’s Food Bank 5 Fold

The GFWC Southside Woman's Club of Jacksonville joined a community initiative, contributing 9,000 cans and raising nearly $50k for JFCS (Jewish Family & Community Services). The Block Family generously matched each donated can with a $5 donation, exemplifying the adage, “It takes a community to feed a community!” A special “Thank You” to Carla Furr (& her husband) for spearheading this valuable community project!!! Thanks to ALL who contributed to this effort!

Our "Bring a Loaf...But a Loaf" Bread Fundraiser was Quite a Success!

“Thank You” Connie Buttlar for spearheading this creative & yummy fundraiser where we raised plenty of “dough” for charities in our area. Thanks to ALL Our Members who donated & purchased a loaf or more!!! 

A Great Time Celebrating SWCJAX's 110th Birthday!

What had great time as we "Dressed like 1913" at our 110th Birthday Celebration. We "Packed the SUV" full of food, school supplies and grocery gift cards, for Greenfield Elementary School (an ESL School on the southside of Jacksonville) in preparation for needy students and faculty during the long holidays ahead. We enjoyed great fellowship, food & fun as we enjoyed learning about GFWC's interesting past, as a well as, hearing from our Members, Tricia W. and Julie B., who have served with GFWC many dedicated years. Also, a special "Thank Yous" to our District 4 Director, Elizabeth Van-Rensburg, and our other special guests for attending our celebration. If you would like to meet our Members and learn all about what we do, contact: Jac Littlefield, President (207) 730-1659 or Cathy Stringer, 2nd VP (904) 755-6651 or Janice Schwarz, Membership (347) 302-4614.

SWCJAX Supports Our Local Red Cross!!

After our Club recieved some valuable training from the Red Cross in CPR Basics, we were able to present our instructor, Jackie Wade, with a check to support our local Red Cross Chapter. Way to give Ladies!!!

Paul Sollee Helped Make Our Members More Savvy Against Cyber Attacks!!

We are grateful to have such an informative speaker warn our Club Member about the MANY ways Cyber Attacks can happen and how to better protect ourselves in a digital world! Always BE AWARE!!!

GFWC Southside Woman’s Club of Jacksonville Really Gives!  

Way to Give, Ladies!!! This month we collected "Books for the Brave," as part of the GFWC FL President's Day of Giving. We were also able to give Greenfield Elementary School 12 vouchers for free eye exams and glasses for needy students, through our corporate partner, America's Best. And for our furry friends...we collected rugs, towels & empty Medicine Bottles for FOJA.  

GFWC FL Southside Woman’s Club of Jacksonville Club Members LOVE partnering with up and coming organizations like R.E.S.T.O.R.E., who's primary function is to integrate women back into society, once their debt to society has been filled.

Envision The Future!!

Our “Envision The Future" project (for children who can't afford an actual eye exam or glasses) is well under way at Greenfield Elementary School! After it has been determined WHO needs glasses, our corporate sponsor, America's Best, is ensuring that every needy child recieves a voucher for the exam and glasses they need. 

What fun we had delivering the "Corky Angels" to an assisted living facility in our brought joy to residences and workers alike!!!

Keep us, O God, from pettiness; let us be large in thought, in word, in deed.


Let us be done with fault finding and leave off self-seeking.


May we put away all pretenses and meet each other face to face- without self-pity and without prejudice.


May we never be hasty in judgment and always generous.


Let us take time for all things; make us grow calm, serene, and gentle.


Grant that we may realize that it is the little things that create differences; that in the big things of life we are at one.


And may we strive to touch and to know the great common human heart of us all.


And, O Lord God, let us forget not, to be kind.

The first and foremost goal of our non-profit organization is to make a difference in as many people's lives as possible. We strive to improve the living conditions for those who need the help, who can't do it themselves.


Have you ever thought about how much you could change things just by volunteering?
