Initiated by the Clemmons Community Foundation, Women Who Care is a nonprofit, volunteer-run organization, dedicated for the past three years to improving the lives of local children and families, one child and family at a time.
The School Supply Drive, in partnership with Staples, started when Laura Grimes, who is current a member of Women Who Care, realized there was an overlooked need. She understands that the very best thing the community can do for students in need is gather school supplies, so that they can face their education confidently and well-prepared.
Recently, Women Who Care has begun to examine more opportunities to get involved in the community. Their newest inspiration focuses on helping the Clemmons Food Pantry to collect adult hygiene products, another overlooked need.
Kirsten Russ, who has been a member of Women who care for approximately three-and-a-half years, says, “I believe in the power and ability of women to change the community for the better. Clemmons and Lewisville are wonderful places, but there are areas that can be improved.”
Women Who Care appreciates partnerships with area businesses and organizations, such as Staples, Clemmons Food Pantry and the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools, in order to foster positive, long-term benefits for families in Lewisville and Clemmons.
For local women who would like to get involved, visit Women Who Care through their Facebook page and plan to attend the New Member Meeting on January 25th, 2016, at the Clemmons Village Inn and Event Center.
