Junior Women's Club

Happy New Year from the Junior Women’s Club of Wolcott.

We are extending our heartfelt gratitude to be able to assist our Wolcott community throughout our 35 years supporting the Toys for Tots & Teens project.   This project is made possible year over year by the generous toys and monetary donations we receive from our Wolcott residents, local businesses and organizations.  Thank you to Samson Machine, Fercodini Properties, Mattatuck Industrial Scrap Metal, Tynan & Iannone, The Wolcott Lion’s Club, Pat’s IGA, American Legion, Dollar General, Webster Bank, TD Bank and the Wolcott Elementary Schools, Wolcott High School and Tyrell School.  All donations remained in Wolcott.  This Christmas season we assisted 25 families, 59 children ranging in ages from 1 month to 18.   Besides toys for the children each family received a gift certificate for $75.00 and each teenager received a $50.00 gift certificate.  The Junior Womens’ Club of Wolcott is continuing to serve the Wolcott Community with our Fuel assistance fund.  100% of all donations for the Fuel Fund are distributed for just that – “Fuel”.  We are committed to give the gift of heat when our neighbors need a helping hand.

Attention 5th Grade Students of Wolcott.  The Junior Women’s Club of Wolcott, Inc. is sponsoring a creative writing contest during the month of January 2021.  The theme is “What is Best about Wolcott.”   Contest rules are available at each elementary school.  One winner from each school will receive a $25.00 Barnes and Noble gift card.  Winning essays will be published in the Wolcott Community News. Good Luck to all participants.

We are a small but mighty club of dedicated volunteers, and we want to thank the town of Wolcott for the support that you have given us since our inception in 1966.  We are a volunteer organization for the advancement and promotion of education, public health & welfare, social, civic interests and the arts.  This organization is a 501C non-profit, non-partisan, non-sectarian, and non-political group.  We are dedicated to being a “volunteer” and helping our community.

The Junior Women’s Club of Wolcott meets the 1st Wednesday of every month from September-June at 7 pm.  Our meetings are open to all women over the age of 18, who are interested in doing volunteer work in our community.
