By Cyndy Gallacher, Mill Creek Women’s Club Publicity Chair.
In spite of the obstacles created by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Mill Creek Women’s Club is continuing to actively contribute to the well-being of the community through its philanthropic efforts and when social norms are reinstated, will continue to host entertaining in person social events for its members. ZOOM events have been very successful and enjoyed by all.
Our November 2020 Auction in support of Domestic Violence Services of Snohomish County, Dawson Place Child Advocacy Center, and YWCA Pathways for Women was very successful raising close to $23,000. The website mcwc.maestroweb.com will be open until the end of December should you wish to donate to worthy causes and/or need a yearend tax donation. Simply go to “Raise the Paddle” to donate.
The Mill Creek Women’s Club supports Snohomish County Domestic Violence Services, Dawson Place Child Advocacy Center, the Mill Creek Food Bank, the YWCA Pathways for Women and the YWCA Working Wardrobe which assists women with suitable clothing for job interviews and employment. Woodside School has also received support.
Kathi Zehner, our Philanthropy Chair, applied for a CARES Grant. Kathi wrote and submitted the grant application to the City of Mill Creek CARES Service Organization Relief Fund Agreement. The MCWC was awarded $4,000 for use for COVID-19 related needs. This will be disbursed amongst our charities.
