WOMEN HELPING WOMEN
Through the Solano County Library, our club sponsors a literacy program for women. They learn and support each other as they also learn.
Shown: Tutor Carole O'Hara, staff administrator Anika, learner Blanca, Stephanie Beardsley, learner Diane, Program Manager Joanne Wright, and learner Grace.
Each spring, Soroptimists gather personal items, school supplies and other necessities for the Kases for Kids program. Backpacks are provided to Child Protective Services for children who are removed from their homes for health and safety reasons.
Acknowledging the remarkable women in our community is one of the highlights of the year for our club!
The club was very happy to name two Soroptimist "Fellows" this year. Shown at left is new "Fellow" Stephanie Beardsley, who is receiving her certificate and pin from Arletta Cortright. In the picture on the right, Beth Shedden also receives her Soroptimist "Fellow" certificate and pin from Arletta. Founder Region Fellowship provides grants to women who are completing their final Doctoral year.
Members gather clothing items for victims of domestic violence. Stephanie, Joan, Jackie and Karen are super excited about the new collection!
We serve the Fairfield/Suisun Community in many ways. Here are just a few of the ways that members of Soroptimist share their time and energy to serve women and girls in our community.
