Members of Linn County Republican Women prepare items for donation.
Linn County Republican Women
Club Size: 40
We are very active in projects throughout the calendar year.
We collect new and lightly used children's books to divide between the elementary schools in our county. We collect non-perishable food to distribute to our three food pantries. We participate in the Mamie Eisenhower Library Project and give a book each year on rotation to one of the libraries in our county. We present the book to the librarian at our meeting.
We host the annual Spring Scholarship/Membership Brunch and invite senior girls from the three high schools and their mothers who are interested in our club.
For 15 years, we have been able to give one senior in each of the high schools a $400 scholarship. This is by donation only from our members and also the Linn County Republican Central Committee. Every odd year we present a "Thesaurus Synonyms & Antonyms" to each third grader on rotation to the schools. We send care packages to our soldiers overseas. We always send four boxes, sometimes more if we are supplied with a soldier's name.
