First Connection has two objectives. The first is to help new members learn not only about our club, but also about the California Federation and the General Federation of Women's Clubs. The second is to do hands on philanthropy. Combining these two purposes is a great way to acclimate our new members to both the club and helping our community.
Yearly projects have included making “ditty-bags" for the kids at Bethune Transitional, cooking dinner at the Ronald McDonald house, and making Valentine's for the Vets at Long Beach Veterans Hospital.
Made dog coats for the animals at Long Beach Animal Care Services;
made Easter Baskets for children at Interval House;
packed individual laundry soap bags for Bethune Transitional;
and held a baby shower at Precious Life Shelter.
Join us and learn what fun you can have being social and helping other people.
