Northern District of GFWC Virginia

Northern District Fall Meeting 2023

Northern District members gathered together in October to enjoy fellowship time together, the fall marketplace and get caught up on our District news & activities. We had two insightful guest speakers talk to us about fostering children and ways we can help the foster system. In addition, Club members were very generous with pajama donations for the Northern District President's project - Care for Kids with 'Comfort Cases' program.

Our next gathering will be the Annual meeting in April 2024. We hope to see you there!

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.
