The Woman's Club of Ocoee celebrates it's 87th year of service to the Community in 2011. This represents innumerable volunteer hours on the part of Club members and their Families.

BR Dental, along with the GFWC Woman's Club of Ocoee is collecting Pop-Tabs! Pull for Ronald McDonald House Charities. Even little things like a pop-tab can make a person's day brighter. Collecting Pop-Tabs is a great volunteer opportunity benefiting Ronald McDonald House families. When you pull for the House That Love Built, you expand public awareness, raise money and help the environment.
This will be a blessing in the life of families in need and will not add any burden to yours. By participating in this project, we are "Making a Difference" in a family's life and helping with the recycling of aluminum materials. This project doesn't require much effort but the effect of the project will be long-range in "Making a Difference".
Sew Much Comfort
The GFWC Woman's Club of Ocoee supported the Sew Much Comfort project by donating 29 new collegiate t-shirts. Sew Much Comfort helps provide free adaptive clothing for wounded service members. They are a nationally recognized non-profit which provides adaptive clothing to support the unique needs of our wounded service members from all branches of the military and National Guard. The need for adaptive clothing continues to grow as American military members continue to be injured serving in our current conflicts. Each week, many wounded military members arrive in the States from Germany for extensive medical treatment for bullet wounds, burns, head and limb injuries, and amputations. They also support many previously-injured service members as their needs change and they are still in the recovery process.
These injuries require large fixator prosthetics and casts that are too bulky to fit under ordinary clothing and underwear. Without adaptive clothing, the only option for them is a hospital gown. Sew Much Comfort is the only organization providing adaptive clothing at no cost to our wounded service members.
All of the adaptive clothing was designed with input from the wounded and from medical personnel. The wardrobe options continue to evolve as the strive to meet the needs of our injured service members. Sew Much Comfort has produced and delivered over 100,000 items of adaptive clothing and comfort accessories. They ship to medical units, hospital wards, clinics and military medical facilities in the United States, Landstuhl (Germany) and Combat Medical Units in Iraq, Afghanistan and Kuwait. Their focus is to have a presence in every military facility where our wounded are recovering while also providing adaptive clothing after they have recovered sufficiently to return home.
If you would like to support the Sew Much Comfort project, please contact Teresa Lemons, President, GFWC Woman's Club of Ocoee at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Teresa is our Office Manager and takes great pride in serving our community.
