back to All Programs

Clothesline Project 
This program addresses the issue of violence against women. It is a vehicle for women affected by violence to express their emotions by decorating a shirt. They then hang the shirt on a clothesline to be viewed by others as testimony to the problem of violence against women. (

Dress for Success
This program collects interview type clothing for The Women's Resource Center. (

Girl Scouts
This organization is the world's preeminent organization dedicated solely to girls-all girls-where, in an accepting and nurturing environment, girls build character and skills for success in the real world. In partnership with committed adult volunteers, girls develop qualities that will serve them all their lives, like leadership, strong values, social conscience, and conviction about their own potential and self-worth. (

This program collects used cell phones, in good condition, to be given to help support domestic violence individuals. (

Look Good Feel Better
This American Cancer Society (ACS) program is a community-based, free, national service that teaches female cancer patients beauty techniques to help restore their appearance and self-image during chemotherapy and radiation treatments. (

Sequins & Smiles
This program has three parts; the first part collects old prom dress or bridesmaid gowns, the second part is donating these dresses to less fortunate but deserving girls and the third part is to build up the self esteem of these girls through workshops and activities. This program needs new and gently used prom dresses and bridesmaid gowns, handbags, shoes, jewelry and unused unopened cosmetics. (

Tell a Friend
This American Cancer Society (ACS) program is designed to help increase breast cancer screening and early detection through regular mammograms. Trained volunteer callers contact five friends or acquaintances to encourage them to get a mammogram. This strategy is called "peer counseling" because the volunteers are contacting other women much like themselves. It's a strategy that has been tested and really works! (

Take Back the Night
This program provides awareness about violence against women. This is accomplished by having a march through the town culminating with a rally and candle light vigil. (

Women's Resource Center
This program is a place where anyone can come and find out about gender issues. They are there because they believe woman should be able to live life free from fear of partner violence, sexual assault, and sexual harassment. They strive to support the empowerment of women, promote a feminist perspective, celebrate differences within and amongst all, provide a safe and welcoming space and promote change through an activist orientation.
