What is the Northern District?

The Northern District is a group of 20 General Clubs, 1 Junior Club and 2 Juniorette Clubs, mostly located in the Northern Virginia region.  The combined membership of our clubs is 745 ladiesWe make a difference together!

Northern District of GFWC Virginia was organized in 1924 and is 1 of 8 districts within GFWC Virginia.

We support our community with volunteer programs in Arts & Culture, Civic Engagement & Outreach, Education & Libraries, Environment and Health & Wellness, Domestic and Sexual Violence Awareness and Prevention and Advocates for Children.

The Northern District President's Project 

The Northern District is proud to support Care for Kids with Comfort Cases.   

A Comfort Case is a NEW small duffel bag or backpack holding BRAND NEW items of necessity and comfort to be delivered to youth entering foster care (newborns to age 21).  Join 'Comfort Cases' in replacing trash bags traditionally carried as a 'suitcase' by those in foster care.  Children need to know that their community cares about them, and wants them to have something of their very own.
