Some Words from Our President
Four years ago my family moved from our hometown to Harrisonburg. Having been involved in our community back home I was looking for an opportunity to meet others, serve the community and give back. After finding Harrisonburg Women’s Service League online I attended my first meeting and knew I had found my niche. A group of vibrant ladies with a heart for service in the community in which we all live.
HWSL supports the women and children of Harrisonburg City and Rockingham county. The support coming the form of service and fundraising. Local organizations that have benefited from our efforts include First Step domestic violence shelter, Second Home, Mercy House and Girls on the Run. The local Department of Social Services Day with Santa is a group favorite service event. Annually HWSL hosts a golf tournament to raise funds.
Last year and this year presents new challenges with the COVID-19 pandemic. Our group is committed to innovative ways to provide fundraising and service events. Now more than ever the women and children of our community need our help- we will rise to the challenge.
