Every year in Warrick County the Women’s Club of Newburgh (WCN) holds several Community Service Projects. Between September 2018 and May 2019 the WCN held seven (7) events throughout th
e community. These events included an Angel Tree for Chandler Elementary students where WCN members donated Christmas gifts for 23 under privileged elementary students; an ice cream and cookie social for SIRS clients and staff; $500 for turkeys and helped to fill food boxes at Sharon Elementary; a Valentine party with bingo at the Newburgh Senior Citizens Center, and paid for 5 days of lunches at the Center. In addition WCN also enabled 58 students to purchase books at the Chandler Elementary Book Fair; provided a taco and ice cream bar at the WEC Center for students and staff, and volunteered at the Newburgh Food Pantry, including a $270 donation.
