Club Donates to Local Organizations
Republican Women of Coffee County (AL) recently made donations to two local organizations.
A $500 donation was made to the Wiregrass Emergency Pregnancy Services for the purchase of infant car seats. These are a must-have item for new mothers as hospitals will not release their babies without a proper car seat. WEPS is a pro-life pregnancy resource center that provides emotional and physical support to expectant mothers and families.
RWCC also made a $500 donation to the Dolly Parton Imagination Library of Coffee County. Dolly started this program in 1995 to foster a love of reading among preschool children by giving each child one free, age-appropriate book per month from birth to age 5. The program, which began in Dolly’s home county in east Tennessee, has grown to over 150 million free books delivered throughout the U.S. and four other countries. A $25 donation will provide a book per month for a year to a child who is enrolled in the program. The Dollywood Foundation covers the costs of the infrastructure for the program, to include database, book orders, administrative and mailing costs. RWCC’s donation comes under our Literacy Program which is chaired by Barb Doherty.
