GFWC Lutz-Land O’Lakes Woman’s Club members recently prepared and served a delicious brunch to the residents of Hope Lodge on the Moffitt Cancer Center Campus. These clubwomen are known for their culinary skills and those in temporary residence at this facility who are receiving long-term treatment truly appreciate their generosity and fellowship. In addition to the brunch, the volunteers brought a beautiful Easter basket filled with goodies to be shared as well as a donation of 55 colorful scarves which will be worn by patients experiencing hair loss due to chemo treatments.

Elaine Warner, a longtime club member and widow of District Chief Warner, participated in the tour and the presentation honoring her late husband.

GFWC LUTZ-LAND O’LAKES WOMAN’S CLUB recently welcomed Karen Hubbard, founder of “Bless the Children” and speaker Rebecca Smith to their meeting. This organization is dedicated to the support and education of impoverished children and families in Central American countries and has built schools, outfitted a hospital and regularly ships donated goods to the poorest of communities in those countries. “Bless the Children” has also uplifted families’ incomes by purchasing their beautiful ‘Tapestry of Love’ handcrafted jewelry made of natural stones and organic materials and marketing these pieces at various venues in our country. Madeline McCulloh, Chair of the Woman’s Club’s International Outreach project, presented the women with a club donation check to further benefit this very worthy organization.
