1941 - 1950
1941 The U.S. entered World War II and the nation's interest and energies centered on the war effort. Tough times for clubs everywhere, but 25 loyal members of our club struggled to keep our organization alive and our building unsold.
1946-47 The Marshall Plan brought recovery to Post-War Europe, and the Junior Woman's Club, revived and reorganized, became a Department of the Southside Woman's Club. A drive to raise funds for a Baptist Hospital began, with our club playing an active role, and our President on the Advisory Board for this drive.
1950 The U.S. began a "police action" in Korea, the club organized a Little Women's" group for our teenagers and reactivated its Scholarship Fund.

The Southside Woman’s Club of Jacksonville’s will be collecting personal hygiene products & undergarments, for children who have "accidents" at school and for children who don't even have sock on freezing days. Our campaign continues through the summer into the fall, as we collect gently used pants, shorts & skorts for these under-served children.
