Dunwoody, A Great Place to Call Home!
The Dunwoody Woman’s Club has been helping the Dunwoody area since 1971. We are a service organization of women comprised of various skills and abilities that came together to help shape Dunwoody and the surrounding community and were the driving force behind the formation of the Dunwoody Nature Center, Spruill Center for the Arts, Stage Door Players, and the First Fourth of July Parade.
We continue our support of these groups and strive to make a positive impact on Dunwoody and our surrounding community by:
- Offering college scholarships for local high school seniors
- Offering college scholarships to non-traditional students at Perimeter College at Georgia State University
- Supporting our local elementary, middle, and high schools
- Helping local food pantries like the Community Assistance Center (CAC) and Malachi's Storehouse
- Participating in various projects and provide aid to the Women's Resource Center to End Domestic Violence
- Supporting Street Grace and Georgia Cares to help victims of sex trafficking
- Assisting the Friends of the Dunwoody and Sandy Springs Libraries
- Providing donations and projects for transitional homelessness like Interfaith Outreach Home and Family Promise
- Supporting our local parks by participating in various projects
- Assisting the Dunwoody Police Department on special projects such as Truck and Treat and Christmas for Kids
- Partnering with Dunwoody Preservation Trust
- Assisting and supporting our Veterans with programs like Memorial Day and Veterans Day tributes
- Providing donations and support for community programs like Shot@Life and Operation Smile
- And providing help and support to numerous other local community support groups that make Dunwoody a great place to call home!!
Our main fundraiser is the Dunwoody Home Tour. This event is a community favorite and generates the majority of the proceeds we use to help the community. Unfortunately, the 2020 Home Tour had to be cancelled due to COVID-19. We will not let that stop us!
Thus, we are hosting the 2020 DWC Home Tour Virtual 5KRun/Walk and Stroll to replace a portion of the revenue the club would have made from our annual home tour. If you enjoy running, go for the 5K. Or you can take a stroll in your own beautiful neighborhood; you decide how much or how little you want to walk.
Either way you are supporting the Dunwoody Woman’s Club and their charitable initiatives in the community and beyond. The club is a 501 ( c ) (3) nonprofit organization. We appreciate your support. Thank you.
Your help will make a huge difference here in our community and beyond!
