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.

We HONOR

Acknowledging the remarkable women in our community is one of the highlights of the year for our club!
