Here’s a condensed version that includes the key information about the Junior Woman’s Club of Williamsburg (JWCW) for your latest post:

Overview of the Junior Woman’s Club of Williamsburg (JWCW)

Founded in 1954, the JWCW is a vibrant volunteer organization made up of civic-minded women dedicated to making a positive difference in our community. Our members, ranging in age from their 20s to 40s, are predominantly from Williamsburg, James City County, and the Bruton District of York County.

Our club actively supports a variety of charitable organizations and community services through both financial contributions and volunteer efforts. Key fundraising events, such as Brews that Benefit and Art on the Square, allow us to provide mini-grants to local nonprofits and scholarships to deserving high school seniors.

Proudly affiliated with the General Federation of Woman’s Clubs (GFWC) and its Lee District since 1925, JWCW is part of a global network that includes over 100,000 members across the world, all committed to community service.
