[ARCHIVED] City Supported GFWC Advocates for Children Month

NMB Womans Club

During their October 19 meeting, City Council presented a Proclamation in support of the General Federation of Women's Clubs (GFWC) Advocates for Children Month, which was October 25-31. The North Myrtle Beach Woman’s Club is a GFWC affiliate.

Since the early 1900s, GFWC members have played an intricate role in advocating for the health and well-being of children with prominent clubwomen such as Jane Addams and Julia Lathrop paving the way for the implementation of improved child labor and juvenile court laws. 

GFWC members also educate, advocate, and engage in projects concerning the well-being of children via health, social and safety programs by working to ensure protection from harmful situations and by encouraging healthy physical and emotional lifestyles.

The North Myrtle Beach Woman’s Club advocates for children by supporting Tools for Schools, Children’s Recovery Center, the Autism Foundation, the USO United through Reading Program, and more.

Each year the GFWC and its affiliated local clubs in Horry County stand with parents, grandparents, educators, community leaders, and others in emphasizing the important role that children play in our lives by raising awareness about issues directly impacting children.
