GFWC Rotonda West Woman's Club contributes to Surfside aid

GFWC Rotonda West Woman’s Club reacted as quickly as possible to the tragedy at the Surfside Florida condo disaster. They donated a check for $500 and joining with the other General Federation of Women’s Clubs (GFWC) chapters throughout Florida to provide relief for 400 first responders and many anxious families. Hydration and personal safety became a challenge for first responders working in wet, hot, and humid conditions at the Surfside Condominium Disaster. On site every day, GFWC clubwomen delivered hundreds of neck gaiters, boot dryers, moisture-control socks, foot powder, blister relief items and t-shirts. They provided midnight meals and returned daily with thousands of water bottles and snacks for first responders and anxious families waiting onsite. Also donated by the GFWC volunteers were tents, tables, chairs, and industrial fans, giving first responders an opportunity to replenish their strength during breaks. The clubwomen also provided kitchen necessities for 35 Surfside families who lost their homes and are moving into new permanent living quarters. GFWC Florida President Dianne Foerster reflected on the actions of the GFWC volunteers during the past month. “I am grateful that GFWC Florida has made a small impact in the lives of so many during this tragedy. Thank you to all who helped GFWC Florida reach out to those who needed our hearts, our help, and our prayers,” said Foerster. Donations are still gratefully being accepted. Checks can be designated for “Surfside Disaster Relief” and made payable to GFWC Florida, 4444 Florida National Drive, Lakeland, FL, 33813. There are three GFWC Clubs in Charlotte County. For information about the Rotonda West Woman’s Club or to join, please contact rwwcmembership@hotmail.com. You do not have to be a resident of Rotonda West to become a member.
