In honor of Women's History Month, the Elizabeth Chapter of WFWP initiated the "CARE PACKAGE PROJECT." The idea was to start a collection and fundraising drive to help homeless women in the community by donating personal hygiene and accessories such as hand sanitizers, tissues, toothbrushes, toothpaste, face towels, deodorant, soap, and scarves. The Association of Christian Evangelist immediately sent their financial donation together with several families and individuals. Others donated items to include in the packages. WFWP USA also donated bags and brochures. The campaign started at the beginning of March and lasted until the 30th. Then the drop-off was made at the end of the month to the recipient organization: the Elizabeth Coalition To House the Homeless, a non-profit organization helping the homeless and…

Women's Federation for World Peace Arizona Chapter's "Purse Project: Women Helping Women" was a resounding success! It started last year when we saw a picture on Facebook of a handbag filled with toiletries and essential items for homeless women. The WFWP Arizona Chapter decided to use that inspiration to help homeless women in the community and we decided to give our donations of handbags and purses filled with essential items to "Maggie's Place" on March 12, 2016, during Women's History Month. We created a flyer with contact information and a Facebook event encouraging women to collect and/or donate bags filled with toiletries, snacks, money, or whatever the donor wants to share with those in need. Our first donor was a nurse colleague named Lynda Peralta,…

On Saturday, February 13, 2016, the Northern Virginia Chapter of WFWP presented entertainment for around twenty-five senior citizens in a low-income senior residence in Woodbridge, Virginia. The event was organized by Mrs. Carmella Ciemny, NOVA WFWP Community Service Coordinator, and showcased the talents of young adults, their parents, and other members of the surrounding community including two Mormon missionaries. The goal of the event was to bring joy to the seniors. Because the residents had enjoyed the Talent Show the WFWP chapter had hosted in May of 2015, they had asked if the chapter could come again; so this is the second talent show NOVA WFWP has held at the residence. The event began with the Lake Ridge Fellowship House providing a chili lunch for…

The Arizona Chapter of WFWP has recently started a project called the Purse Project, in which participants gather and collect used purses filled with several essential items to give to homeless women. Rhia Clemente, chairwoman of WFWP Arizona, created and helped organize the project with the help of her friends, who were very inspired by her idea. One friend even introduced Rhia to a local radio announcer named Naye Olivera, who helped spread news of the project to her listeners through announcements on her women’s radio station. Ms. Olivera also collected bags from her personal friends to support the WFWP group. She was very inspired to hear what Rhia and her team are doing since she is also very passionate about helping women. “When we…

On December 13, members of the Arizona Chapter of WFWP hosted a gathering to appreciate the support of all those who supported and helped them in 2015. At the same time, they wanted to reciprocate through supporting Ms. Elizabeth Inganamort of Falcon's Guard Center in a toy drive to send toys to needy children in Mexico. Three of the ladies who came, Ms. Elizabeth Inganamort, Ms. Dorada Basaca, and Ms. Veronica Sevilla Villalobos, had attended WFWP's 23rd National Assembly in Washington, D.C., in October. A number of new members joined WFWP that day: the reigning Miss Earth Arizona, Miss Asia Espiritu Dising; her very supportive mother, Mrs. Grace Esoiritu Dising; Miss Lauren Casildo, Ms. Griselda Varela, and Ms. Jesus Molina. We are looking forward to…

On a chilly, Saturday morning, November 21, about 40 people, mostly young people, gathered to raise funds for "Schools of Africa" and for local youth group leadership programs through raking leaves. This annual leaf raking fundraiser has been a tradition in the Northern Virginia (NOVA), community for over 12 years.

On Thursday, October 22, 2015 over 70 people participated in WFWP National Day of Service that was held for the third consecutive year at the 4th District Metro Police Department, 6001 Georgia Ave. NW, in Washington, DC. This project was initiated in 2013 by WFWP USA Vice-President Rev. Juanita Pierre-Louis, who made a proposal to add a service component to kick-off the National Assembly by sponsoring a National Service Project in the DC Area. The theme in 2013 was "Learn to Lead through Service.” Min. Chi Mauuso, a well-known community organizer in DC, suggested that we tackle some of the problems in the community, so we decided to clean the streets in one of the communities in Washington, DC. In this year’s Day of Service…

This year’s National Day of Service was the best one yet. After months of preparing for the big day everything finally fell into place and the atmosphere was filled with excitement from everyone. My personal motto “Teamwork makes the Dream Work,” was the guiding thought for the day. Even though there were fewer students participating in the Day of Service than in the previous two years, we were able to accomplish what we set out to do. This included cleaning Washington, DC’s historic Georgia Avenue as well as cleaning up Emory Park and the Emory Recreation Center, which was new to this year’s project. Lots of footage was taken to document this awesome occasion. Many restaurants in the area donated delicious food for the participants.…
