WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- The Woman’s Club of White Plains is celebrating a century of commitment to the White Plains community by unveiling a new logo and announcing its 100 Acts of Kindness, a series of volunteer projects and events for 2016.
“The new logo reflects a fresh look for our second 100 years. Our members are looking forward to building on the solid foundation of the incredible women who have come before us while focusing on the future,” explains Christine Roithmayr, president of The Woman’s Club of White Plains Foundation.
In 2016, the Woman’s Club membership is very diverse, representing women of all ages, religions and ethnicities.
While the club still provides a social and networking venue for its members, its primary focus remains on its remarkable commitment to supporting local charities and volunteerism. This year the Club’s 100 Acts of Kindness campaign expands upon its current portfolio of volunteer activities. The campaign was kicked off by collecting 100 Warm Coats for the Burlington Coat Factory Warm Coats and Warm Hearts Coat Drive and toiletries for domestic violence victims at My Sisters’ Place.
Currently members are assembling pet food donations for the Hudson Valley Pet Food Pantry and proceeds from the recent winter tea will be given to the White Plains Library Foundation. The public is urged to donate blood at the upcoming blood drive on Saturday, Feb. 27, between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. at the Club on Ridgeway. Future plans include an indoor tag sale in March, supporting the City of White Plains Soles 4 Souls shoe collection in April, a paperback book drive for the troops and a mittens collection for Head Start students.
Mayor Tom Roach said, "2016 is a milestone year for both the City of White Plains and the Woman's Club, with each celebrating its centennial anniversary."
New members are welcome at the club’s historic home, the CV Rich Mansion. The public is encouraged to support the Woman’s Club’s events as it continues its tradition of supporting the community. For additional information, visit the club’s website or visit us on Facebook.
