Support for women and their families has always been a priority for Bexley Women’s Club.
During the Depression, the Bexley Women’s Club provided Bexley families with food and clothing. For many years, the Club supported Choices, a shelter for families escaping domestic violence.
More recently, Bexley Women’s Club has donated funds for the Jeffrey Mansion renovation, supported Bexley families during COVID through the Developmental Assets Resource Network (DARN), and packed care packages for our troops with Operation Buckeye.
Every month, we work together on a social service project, caring for others in Bexley and our wider community.
