Living The Volunteer Spirit

 

The Hollywood Women’s Club Community Service Programs and Special Projects are structured to enable the Club to harness our vast resources as volunteers. HWC works locally and nationally to bring about positive change with an unwavering dedication to community improvement through volunteer service. Simply put, we impact lives, through acts large and small.

We are distinguished from other service organizations by the breadth of our outreach spanning all areas of the lives of our members, their families, and communities: arts, conservation, education, home life, public issues and international outreach.

With busy lives, it can be hard to find time to volunteer. However, the benefits of volunteering are enormous to you, your family, and your community. The right program can help you to reduce stress, find friends, reach out to the community, learn new skills and even advance your career.

It is important that you keep track of the volunteer hours you spend on behalf of the Hollywood Women’s Club. Please download the Volunteer Hour Tracking Form. You will be asked to submit this form to the Membership Vice President annually.
