Since 1975, the Woman’s Club of Greene County (WCOG) has been dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service.
The members are community leaders who work locally to create change by advancing education, advocating for children, offering support to individuals impacted by domestic violence, and encouraging civic involvement in multiple ways. As individuals and as a group, we work for the betterment of the community by serving the residents of Greene County, Virginia.
Each year since 1978 WCOG has awarded at least two scholarships to graduating female seniors at William Monroe High School. The scholarships are given each year for students seeking higher education in both two and four-year college programs. This project is partially funded by the proceeds from table rentals at our annual Helping Hands Craft Bazaar.
Starting in 2004, “Not Your Ordinary Yard Sale” was organized to help raise funds for the Caring for Children Christmas Gift Project. The yard sale has been held each spring with generous donations from our members and the community.
Stop Hunger in Greene
Stop Hunger in Greene continues our mission to help feed the hungry in Greene County. This is accomplished through various school programs by providing food for children throughout the year. Additionally, we help provide emergency food gift cards for at-risk families.
Every December WCOG partners with Social Services and other established groups to identify children in need during the holidays. WCOG provides wrapped gifts and books to over 400 children in Greene County. Funding for this project is from generous donations by individuals, businesses, and organizations in our community combined with proceeds from our annual Spring yard sale and other fundraisers.
With support from individuals, businesses, and organizations, WCOG is able to participate in other projects during the year which enhance the community and the lives of others through our volunteer service.
