THE GWC TODAY
As the Glendora Woman’s Club celebrates its more than 104 years of service to Glendora, two of their accomplishments continue to stand out:
Founding of the Glendora Public Library:
Since 1912 the club has maintained an important financial and philanthropic commitment to the Library. In addition to our annual gifts the GWC donates to the Library’s Memorial Collection by purchasing books in honor of deceased members. Our members have served on the Library’s Board of Trustees since the beginning in 1912 and continue to do so today.
The ladies of the Glendora Woman’s club held their first meeting in their new clubhouse in November of 1912. Before the clubhouse was built, in January of 1910, a motion was made that the clubhouse (when built) would be available for rent for receptions and teas. That motion passed and the clubhouse has remained available for rent since its opening in 1912. Now 100 years later, and after several renovations, the clubhouse has recently been designated an historical resource in the downtown village area by the City of Glendora Historic Preservation Committee and the Glendora Historical Society.
Annually they continue to support numerous programs, including Holiday Baskets and the Campership project of the Glendora Coordinating Council. The last several years, the general club, along with their different departments, contributed to EYE-DAS, American Heart Association, OASR, Glendora Preservation Foundation, American Cancer Society, Glendora Little League, San Gabriel Hospice, and WINGS. The latter, a shelter for abused women and their children, also received support of clothing and other items and were the Potpourri Department's recipient of Christmas gifts. The list goes on and on.
The Glendora Woman’s Club is a tax exempt California Charitable Organization. We sponsor a major fundraiser each year - The Spring Fashion Show. This fundraiser along with donations to New Unto Others Thrift Shop and our clubhouse rentals support our community charities.
