COMMITTEE SERVICE

Colleyville Woman's Club is an all-volunteer organization. As such, it depends on participation by its members to manage its many wonderful programs and events. There is no requirement for volunteer hours in the Club, but its success is directly related to member involvement. The Board of Directors consists of officers elected annually by members, supported by committee chairmen selected by the officers. The Board meets once each month.

Committee leadership or membership is open to any member in good standing. Members may indicate preferences for committee involvement when joining the Club or renewing membership, or may simply sign up to serve during the year. Even if members do not generally volunteer for "hands on" activities, business experience is invaluable on many committees. This is a great way to get to know other members and to utilize specialized skills and talents.

COMMUNITY PROJECTS

The Club has a few standing projects, as well as helping support community projects throughout the year.


To support the fine work of GRACE, CWC has committed to supplying 30 boxes of skillet dinner meals each month. Members may either bring boxes to monthly meetings or make cash donations to support this effort.

The Club collects gently used cell phones and chargers to assist the Seniors And Law Enforcement Together Council of Tarrant County in conjunction with the Colleyville Police Department. The cell phones will be refurbished and available for Senior Citizens to use for 911 access only.

Attendees bring new, unwrapped nonviolent toys to the December luncheon to be distributed to needy children through area charities. CWC also collects gently used reading glasses and unused hotel-sized toiletries for the less fortunate and gift cards for shelter mothers.

EVENT STAFFING

CWC has a few signature events during the year that require staffing. While other community organizations often step forward to help with this effort, the backbone of these events is support from CWC members.

For the one-day Holiday Home Tour, volunteers are assigned a 2-3 hour shift to welcome visitors in each home and help maintain their safety and the security of items in the homes. Often, homeowners share interesting information that these volunteers can share with visitors to enrich the experience. Many CWC members enlist family members to help.

The spring fashion benefit needs volunteers to help with guest registration and check-out. Also, the auction committees need assistance the day before displaying items.

CWC wraps up its year with the Caring With Commitment Celebration in May. Since there are so many guests, including local dignitaries, grant recipients, scholarship recipients and their families, volunteers are need to welcome and register attendees.
