2018-19 Initiative -- Book Heroes -- a Florida GFWC initiative focusing on improving literacy skills by donating books to children who might not otherwise have them in their home.
GFWC Four Corners Jr. Woman's Club reaches out to Florida and the Four Corners Community, including Polk, Osceola, Lake, and Orange Counties. Our mission is to give back to the community through volunteerism, donations, and whatever we can do to make a difference in the lives of others.
